The South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD), the group responsible for bringing hydrogen Prius hybrids
to California, kicks off the Southern California Clean Vehicle Technology Expo
today. The two-day event is a chance for transportation and fleet decision makers (people like purchasing directors, maintenance managers, county fleet supervisors and mayors) to get a first-hand view of gas that run on more than standard gasoline. These are cars that many of us wouldn't consider buying: garbage trucks, school buses and street sweepers. Aside from the vehicles, attendees will have a chance to learn about funding sources and rules for green fleets. The expo is attempting to clean up the air in California's South Coast region, where there are 11 million vehicles.
readers, if we could all go, would likely be more entranced by the Ride & Drive in the new BMW hydrogen
7 series, an electric pickup from Boshart Engineering and a fuel cell
vehicle from Honda
