Eight States, 3.3x10^6 Cars, 0 Emissions
8 States Want 3.3 Million Electric, Hybrid Cars on the Road by 2025 - TIME


The Zero Emission Vehicles Action plan outlines 11 “actions” that the eight states, including California, Vermont, Maryland, Rhode Island, New York, Oregon, and Massachusetts, will adopt in order to get the vehicles on the road. The steps include promoting the availability of zero-emission vehicles, promoting workplace charging and providing consumer incentives for buying green cars.
My thinking is in lieu of rebating the cost of a new car, they could give anyone still driving an old VW Beetle or Datsun 510 a free electric conversion. The embedded costs would be lower.

It is encouraging to hear they set the Goal for 2025 , 11 years away.
The price of Gas should be enough incentive , although it will probably take a Big Rebate to get the numbers they seek.
The Budget econ boxes need to be Hybrids as well, Prices have got come down.
