Clean Car Rules in California

Going Green

To comply with new rules set by the Air Resources Board, auto manufacturers are required to offer more zero- or very low-emission cars such as battery electric, hydrogen fuel cell and plug-in hybrid vehicles with model year 2018.  These measures are approved by state regulators to cut greenhouse gas emissions from cars and place more pollution-free vehicles on the road in the future.

The rules should result in one in seven new autos sold in California, or roughly 1.4 million to be ultra-clean, which will change what is now a driving novelty into the mainstream.  Tougher new-car standards are also set for emissions that form smog, and contribute to global warming.


The other alternativeThe new rules appear to have the auto manufacturers' support, though not without some uneasiness over some of the requirements.  It is expected that the new rules will impact car prices, as the advanced technologies to meet the new standards will add about $1,900 to the price of a new car in 2025.  For the long run, the cost could be offset by about $6,000 in fuel savings over the life of the vehicle.

Presently, there are about a few hundred fuel cell cars and about 34,000 battery electric autos on the roads in California. These low-emission vehicles are a small portion of California's more than 26 million cars.
