California Air Resources Board Applauds New Fuel Economy Car Labels
For immediate release
SACRAMENTO - California Air Resources Board Chairman Mary D. Nichols applauded the fuel economy labels unveiled today by the USEPA and Department of Transportation.
“These labels are evidence that tough standards are already delivering clean, efficient cars that save consumers thousands of dollars over the life of the vehicle. I am confident that the standards we are now working on with our federal partners will continue to drive innovation and deliver even more savings and greater reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.”
The new federal labels were based, in part, upon labels first introduced in California in 2008. (See http://www.arb.ca.gov/newsrel/nr061908b.htm )
California has also developed a comprehensive online Clean Car Buyers Guide to help consumers choose the cleanest car.
