California Holds Firm on Zero Emission Vehicle Sales Rules
Washington — The head of the California Air Resources Board said the state has no plans to reduce its zero-emission vehicle requirements in the face of lower than expected electric vehicle sales.
In an interview on the sidelines of an automotive conference here, board chair Mary Nichols said California — which is prodding many automakers into building electric vehicles — is not backing down.
"The mandate is actually rather lower in comparison to our hopes for EVs," Nichols said. "Yes, it's taken off a little slower than we hoped it would … It's just going to take a little longer. We see enough good signs not to feel like we have to change course."
