CALSTART’s Car Initiative focuses on cutting emissions and pollution while working with its industry partners to accelerate the growth of the market for zero-emission vehicles and significantly greater vehicle efficiency overall. Concurrently, we are actively engaging partners and working to develop new mobility business models that will reduce congestion.
To drive change, the Cars Initiatives currently focuses on the following four areas:
- Securing incentives at the federal and state level to encourage the purchase of zero-emission vehicles.
- Building out zero-emission infrastructure so that consumers and fleets can drive with security.
- Supporting strong, but feasible vehicle standards that advance technology but also keep vehicles affordable and viable.
- Identifying and supporting new mobility initiatives that can reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicle miles traveled in urban and suburban areas.
