More than 260,000 ZEVs Sold in Eight States

28 October 2014

Eight states in the United States have reported sales of more than 260,000 zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), with the quarter-million mark reached in September 2014, says a press release by California Air Resources Board. Of this, California, alone, has purchased or leased more than 100,000 ZEVs. Another seven states account for more than 135,000 units. The first eight states include the states of California, Massachusetts, Maryland, Oregon, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, and Vermont.

“In only a few short years we have gone from virtually zero to a quarter-million zero-emission cars, and every day moves us closer to our combined goal of 3.3 million by 2025. This announcement is further evidence that the market for zero emission vehicles is growing and that increasingly, consumers nationwide are choosing to say no to cars that run on petroleum and yes to a new generation of ultra-clean vehicles,” said Mary D. Nichols, chairman of the California Air Resources Board.
