If I wasn't already a huge fan of Tesla Motors
May 30, 2007

I would be now... At a recent appearance before the California Air Resources Board (CARB—familiar, I'm sure, to anyone who's seen Who Killed the Electric Car), Tesla Motors CEO Martin Eberhard delivered a deliciously sarcastic three minute statement about California's Zero Emissions Vehicle Mandate, fuel cells, and electric cars. A quick excerpt: However, we are actually delighted by the way this bias [towards hydrogen fuel cell vehicles] finds implementation in the ZEV mandate. For the results of this mandate is that all of our potential EV competitors – all the big car companies – remain mired in non-productive, deeply-expensive fuel cell programs, keeping them out of the EV marketplace, and indeed out of the serious ZEV marketplace entirely. The full text is available on the Tesla Motors blog. Politics, in my opinion, is in dire need of more sarcasm.
