    California’s Air Resources Board is starting to realize that it might have made a mistake by projecting a 15.4 percent market share for zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by 2025. The state, which pioneered incentivizing automakers to sell electric vehicles, is being outpaced by countries, like Norway and the Netherlands, exploring the idea of ZEVs having a 100 percent market share within the same timeframe.

    Furthermore, because of Tesla, which only sells ZEVs, and the popularity of a few plug-in hybrid models, like the Volt, ZEV credits have flooded the market and now automakers would only need to achieve a 6 percent ZEV market share in the state and compensate with credits bought from other automakers in order to comply with CARB’s mandate without being fined. more…

    Sure, CARB wants to incentivize driving clean air vehicles, except when an in-state company pulls the wagon train across the desert..

    Hear the violins? "No. Sorry. Not that clean, Tesla. We can't reward those companies which sincerely get with the program!!! We need smokers to quit and enter into the no smoking zone, to augment global diversity. How would we look if people see that you're employing Californians? What favoritism! All those people allergic to electricity might complain!"

    The man was right. The road to ruin is paved with good intentions. (All you need do is add some bad execution and then change the rules if the good folks take up the lead. We need to give the unworthy their participation trophies, too.)
