ARB Presented with Electric Vehicle


SACRAMENTO
-- Tomorrow the Dynasty Motorcar Corporation will present the California Environmental Protection Agency's Air Resources Board (ARB) with an electric modular utility vehicle.

Friday, March 30
2:30 p.m.

Cal/EPA Loading Dock
11th and H Street
Sacramento, California


Graham Hill of Dynasty Motorcar Corporation will hand the keys of the low-speed electric car to ARB's Chief Deputy Executive Officer Tom Cackette. Following the presentation, opportunities for a ride-and-drive will be available. The Dynasty car will be on loan to the ARB for six months.

At its January 2001 meeting, the ARB voted to uphold California's Zero-Emission Vehicle Mandate while implementing modifications that will ensure its success. These changes allow Neighborhood Electric Vehicles to count towards the mandate until 2005.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY: The Dynasty Motorcar Corporation's Modular Utility Vehicle will be available for photo opportunities.

The Air Resources Board is a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency. ARB's mission is to promote and protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering effects on the economy. The ARB oversees all air pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain health based air quality standards.

The energy challenge facing California is real. Every Californian needs to take immediate action to reduce energy consumption. For a list of sample ways you can reduce demand and cut your energy costs, see our Website: http://www.arb.ca.gov
