Change is Coming to Auto World, But Slowly
Following decades of misfires, technologically advanced vehicles with lower CO2 emissions are beginning to gain ground on local roads.
Automakers began to build smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles in the 1970s; some created functional electric vehicles in the 1990s, but manufacturers struck a balance at the turn of the century when they unveiled hybrids that use both gasoline and electricity for power.
The hybrids quickly outshined their electric counterparts, evolving to better accommodate the needs of today's drivers while meeting California mandates requiring carmakers to build vehicles minimizing CO2 emissions, experts said.
