So now it seems like they're going to announce new CAFE numbers, but California and 12 other states might stick with the old numbers.

But CAFE is the Corporate average fuel economy so what I don't understand is how one company can have two average fuel economy numbers for two different regions when by definition, an average is one number.

I suppose they sell their gas guzzlers in the other set of states that don't require CA specs? But you could probably still register them if you move into that state? Anyway, seems like a very tricky setup.

Sounds to me like CA and their buddies will only allow the sale of certain vehicles that achieve the standard?

I have wondered for years when Cali will put a stop to this. I'm surprised it's gone on this long.

I still say at some point in the future only "California emissions" vehicles will be allowed to be registered there.

California gets a special blend of gasoline that is only used in California. They have been like this for year. They consider themselves a separate entity in many ways.

So people living there have to ask why is it so expensive living here vs everywhere else?

Ca gets to define what's a "ZEV"...when to my mind, the only ZEV is one sitting on cinderblocks with no wheels.

But then it's ZE, but no V.

Yet both are vitally important.

Well technically ZEV would be an electric car as it wouldn't have any emissions although if you burn gas or coal to make electricity, it's just shifted to a different location. Pzev are also interesting, too bad they don't make more of them, I think they lose a little money making them so they just make enough to meet requirements. Most people don't even seem to know when the have a pzev but one thing that's nice about them is that certain emissions related items are covered for 15/150k.

Technically that's true in many areas, they all have their own special blend to meet the smog specs for a particular area. Makes it hard to shift gas when there's a shortage from one area to another because there's so many variations between one area and another.

Or you could be decent enough to assume that those you disagree with are looking at the issue with some amount of nuance.

I have yet to find a topic in our society that has only 2 paths.

No, there was a smog issue that they identified with HC, CO, and NOx, and went after it...has nothing to do with CAFE. It's important not to get the two confused, however some people LIKE to get the two confused (like China's visual pollution) to prove a point

Regarding the last two sentences...when those first two mentioned technologies (plus the third technology that enables them) work together in providing all that a grid needs, you can diss the latter as old and irrelevant.

at present, the purveyors of unicorn answers disregard the things that those technologies FAIL to provide, especially in a world of electrified transport, while demonising coal.
