Ford,Toyota, GM, and other major automakers are said to be producing “fake” electric cars in order to comply with California’s tough zero-emission vehicles standard.
The last few years have seen electric vehicles (EVs) slowly picking up steam in the automotive industry. While the electric vehicle can trace its roots to the very dawn of the automobile, modern day EVs are just now starting to see widespread production. Trouble is, not all EVs scheduled to come out are “real.”
According to a recent evaluation by Green Car Reports, a number of automakers have developed and been developing battery electric vehicles that are meant solely for the purpose of complying with California regulations regarding zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), which require automakers to sell a certain percentage of ZEVs in the state.
These “compliance” electric vehicles, GRC asserts,must meet a certain criteria in order to be considered so. These included being produced in much limited or lower volume than other EVs currently on the market, offered only through leasing, and selling less than 5,000 units a year or failing to teach global sales minimum of 20,000.
