The State of California is forging ahead with the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) rule despite the lack of power, technology, or infrastructure to accomplish the task of achieving zero emissions starting next year.

The road to zero emission vehicles (ZEV) should not be one-size-fits-all but rather paved with variety to accommodate the different types vehicles, industry segments and miles driven. Putting all the eggs into the battery electric basket is disingenuous to the cause and will hold back improvements to air quality now and in the future, not to mention changing the face of our planet with millions and millions of tons of earth excavated for the minerals necessary to produce batteries.

We have said it numerous times, we are NOT against clean air. We support the goal and strongly believe the industry will get there if given the time to explore every possible path to zero emissions… including diesel.
