Please Stop CARB from Killing EVs a Second Time

The California Air Resources Board will be voting on March 27th on a proposal by CARB staff that would reduce the number of Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) from 25,000 to 2,500 over three years. This means the six major automakers would only make 840 ZEVs a year. CARB staff is proposing this change because the automakers say they cannot produce Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs) except in tiny quantities in 2012-2014. However, they have already proven they can produce battery ZEVs, and we see no reason to wait for hydrogen.
