1Electric Vehicle International opens California headquarters, launches new lineup

When we last heard from Electric Vehicles International (EVI) they were displaying a trio of trucks at the Work Truck Show in Chicago that they had electrified at their facility in Mexico. Fast forward 7 months and we find none other than Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on hand for the grand opening of the company's relocated international headquarters in Stockton, California and a whole new slate of product in the works. EVI has partnered with a handful of companies, most significantly battery-m

11Peapod meets the Governator, makes new friend [w/VDEO]

It appears that the Peapod has emerged unscathed from the recent turmoil of Chrysler's brush with bankruptcy. In fact, the little neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) with the big friendly (or evil, depending on your point of view) smile is now riding about the 35 mph-or-lower streets of California, where it is making lots of friends, including the governor of the state, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The former Hummer owner has fallen, by his own admission, "... in love with it."

52REPORT: Obama to announce new CAFE standards tomorrow, require 34 mpg standard

According to reports from both the New York Times and Politico, the Obama Administration plans to announce new CAFE regulations tomorrow that will finally reconcile both federal and state standards. The plan is expected to combine California's strict emission rules with the federal rule, raising the national fleet mileage to around 42 mpg for cars and approximately 26 mpg for light trucks by 2016 – an increase over the current standards of 27.5 mpg for cars and 24 mpg for trucks.

5CA Gov. Schwarzenegger coming to Detroit for SAE World Congress

Dr. David Schutt, EVP and Chief Operating Officer of the Society of Automotive Engineers, today announced that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger would come to Detroit on April 20. Schwarzenegger will deliver an opening keynote address to the SAE World Congress, the annual gathering of mobility engineers from around the world. Schwarzenegger has been a strong proponent for green mobility in recent years (he used to have another persona) as well as a vocal supporter of his state's request

2Manny Lopez imagines what green-minded Politicians used to drive

Not everyone who currently cares about the environment has done so for their whole lives. Who cares? Everyone grows up, though that term means more to some people than to others. For our part, we don't have a problem with the Woodward Dream Cruise, which will take place this weekend in Detroit, Michigan. Sure, there will be lots of carbon-emitting and pollution-generating V8 engines powering Hot Rods and muscle cars for no reason other than to see and be seen. Still, these vehicles were built lo

32Tax breaks for Tesla, Model S sedan to get 225 miles, cost $60k

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger took to the podium today at Tesla's San Carlos, California facility to formally announce a new set of incentives for EV manufacturers to call Cali home. The crux of the address centered on the new CAEATFA program, approved last Wednesday, that exempts automakers from paying sales and use tax on manufacturing equipment used to build EVs. The program is expected to save automakers – and Tesla specifically – millions of dollars, and is largely i

4California Gov. Schwarzenegger to make WhiteStar announcement at Tesla today

We received a heads up overnight that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be making an appearance later today at Tesla Motors headquarters in San Carlos, CA. According to the notice from Tesla, Schwarzenegger will make an announcement regarding the manufacturing strategy for the WhiteStar sedan. Given this announcement and what chairman Elon Musk told us last week about plans to centralize production of its cars, it seems almost certain that the factory originally planned for Albuquerque,

3Has the environmental movement been fueled by guilt as suggested by Schwarzenegger?

According to California governor Schwarzenegger, "California as you know is big, California is powerful and what we do in California has an unbelievable impact, We are sending the world a message, what we are saying is we're going to change the dynamic on greenhouse gases and carbon emissions." This and the following quotes were taken from a speech the governor gave at Georgetown University during a global warming conference. He went on, "For too long the environmental movement has been powered

6Desperate Michigan congressman attacks Schwarzenegger with billboard, website over fuel-economy standards

Republican Rep. Joe Knollenberg of Michigan is already running for re-election, and part of his campaign is to attack California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger with a billboard that reads, "Arnold to Michigan: Drop Dead." Somehow, this stupid idea is meant to call attention to federal efforts to increase CAFE standards and the impact such a move could have on his district. Knollenberg says politicians have "no understanding of auto manufacturing" and believes he is fighting for the survival of domes

AddPremier Gordon Campbell announces plan to cut British Columbia's emissions 33% by 2020

In the U.S., California has led the way with stricter emissions laws than in the rest of the country. The laws that are adopted in California have been adopted in certain other states as well. Now it seems that British Columbia, Canada, will be adopting similar but even slightly tougher emissions standards of their own. Automotive emissions, which make up 40 percent of all emissions in B.C., are to be cut with phasing standards starting in 2009 and extending through 2016.

1Fuel-cell vehicles will tote guests for Schwarzenegger's inauguration

When Arnold Schwarzenegger ousted Gray Davis for the governorship during a 2003 recall election, he didn't have much of an inauguration. Economic times were more humble then, and the wealthy movie star apparently didn't want to show off.

52 more bills in California target global warming

The Golden State is certainly living up to its reputation as the world's environmental watchdog this week. In addition to the state's attorney general suing automakers over greenhouse gases and the recently passed law capping all emissions that contribute to global warming, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will have until the end of the month to decide whether or not he's going to sign two new bills aimed at reducing greenhouse gases. The state's Democratic-controlled Senate and Assembly have alre
