California's Zero Emission Vehicle program requires automakers to offer vehicles for sale that produce no emissions starting in 2003. This study examines the costs and emission benefits of technologies that may be used to meet program requirements, including battery-powered electric vehicles, direct hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, and gasoline hybrid electric vehicles. The authors conclude California should eliminate the program, tighten emission standards on light-duty vehicles, and focus on setting emission performance standards.
