California Governor orders 5M ZEV target for 2030; more hydrogen fueling and EV charging stations

. . . The state’s current target, set by Brown in 2012, is 1.5 million ZEVs by 2025.

Brown is also proposing a new eight-year initiative to continue the state’s clean vehicle rebates and spur more infrastructure investments. This $2.5-billion initiative will help bring 200 hydrogen fueling stations and 250,000 zero-emission vehicle chargers, including 10,000 direct current fast chargers, to California by 2025. . . .

According to the Auto Alliance ZEV sales dashboard, as of the end of October 2017, California had 176,681 battery-electric and fuel-cell vehicles—i.e., fully zero tailpipe emissions vehicles—on its roads. When plug-in hybrids are added, that brings the total to 337,483 units. . . .

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
