California Adapts Nation's Toughest Clean Car Regs
California today approved the nation's most advanced clean car regulations, positioning the state to be a leader in the electric vehicle industry.
By a 9-0 vote, the California Air Resources Board passed a broad set of rules that brings the state in line with President Barack Obama's goal of doubling the nation's auto fuel economy standards from the current 27.3 miles per gallon to 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025.
But the new rules go far beyond the federal mandates by providing a road map for the growth of the electric car industry, which will eventually represent one in every seven new cars sold in the state.
