LONG BEACH, CALIF. - The California Air Resources Board's Drive
Clean California campaign and vehicle manufacturers showcased
the latest fuel efficient, clean technology vehicles at the AVP
Crocs Tour Long Beach Open Pro Beach Volleyball tournament in
Long Beach, California.

The two makes and models showcased at the event included:

    * 2008 Honda Civic GX: compressed natural gas with a smog
score of 9
    * 2008 Ford Escape hybrid with a smog score of 9 

Both vehicles on display carry a Smog Score of 9, with a score
of 10 being best. The Smog Score is part of the new
Environmental Performance Label that will be on all new cars
beginning with the 2009 model year. The Label displays a smog
score and global warming score on a scale of 1-10.

Consumers visiting the Drive Clean booth were be able to consult
with experts about vehicle smog scores, global warming impact,
fuel economy, and state, federal and local incentives

"Today we are able to enjoy a wide variety of clean technology
vehicle makes and models in varying price ranges that are often
more efficient than traditional cars and trucks," said ARB
Chairman Mary D. Nichols. "Buying a cleaner, more efficient
vehicle is a significant step consumers can make to improve air
quality and reduce their impact on global warming,"

"California is a world leader in developing regulations that
have prompted the cleanest cars in the world to be developed,"
adds Nichols.

The AVP was established in 1983 and is comprised of the best
men's and women's pro beach volleyball players in the U.S. and
arguably, the world. The AVP's main goal is to deliver its fans
the experience of an amazing athletic contest surrounded by an
unforgettable beach party. More than one million people are
expected to attend an AVP event this year. The AVP now stands
alone as the only pro beach volleyball association in the
country and has a cooperative relationship with USA Volleyball
and the Federation International de Volleyball (FIVB). For
