2000 ZEV Review

This page last reviewed November 20, 2008

In 1990 the California Air Resources Board adopted the Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) program. The ZEV program is an integral part of California's Low Emission Vehicle program and is intended to secure increasing air quality benefits for California over the long term.

When the ZEV requirement was adopted, the Board acknowledged that many issues would need to be addressed prior to the implementation date. The Board committed to biennial reviews of the program to provide a forum for the necessary policy discussions.

The fourth biennial review of the ZEV program was undertaken by the Board at its September 7, 2000 meeting.
