Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) are ready for commercialization. Perhaps the biggest hurdle remaining to their widespread adoption and to achieving California’s smog and climate change emission reduction goals is consumer acceptance and purchase. To help educate consumers as well as other important stakeholders, the California Plug-in Electric Vehicle Collaborative (Collaborative) partnered with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to develop a PEV Resource Center as part of the DriveClean.ca.gov web site. The PEV Resource Center is an unbiased source of information about PEVs to help a number of different audience groups in California understand more about electric drive technology and what is involved with purchasing a PEV. This great new resource allows consumers, local government officials, policymakers, fleet managers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), utilities, dealers, and the media easily navigate to find the PEV information they are looking for.
