California reaffirms zero-emission vehicle plan

PARK RIDGE, Ill. — California held fast in its battle with the world's biggest auto makers, announcing Friday (Sept. 8) that it will require them to market electric vehicles in the 2003 model year. The announcement came after two days of hearings and deliberations by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), which originally set the mandate in motion a decade ago.
Auto makers had been anxiously awaiting last week's review of the requirements. Most have complained that consumers aren't interested in battery-powered vehicles, and had hoped that CARB would back away from or soften its original mandate, which requires 4 percent of all vehicles sold in California to meet zero-emission vehicle status by 2003. General Motors, Ford, DaimlerChrysler, Honda, Toyota, and Nissan have all produced electric vehicles (EVs) as part of a demonstration plan in California, but have collectively sold or leased only 2,300 of them in that state, well below the roughly 22,000 that will need to be sold annually to meet the CARB mandate.

Just parking this link. No investment in BAAT
