    Calif. out front again with auto emission rules

    Hopes others will continue to follow lead

    SAN FRANCISCO - Seeking to influence other states and Washington, California air regulators passed sweeping auto emission standards yesterday that include a mandate to have 1.4 million electric and hybrid vehicles on state roads by 2025.

    The California Air Resources Board unanimously approved the new rules that require that one in seven of the new cars sold in the state in 2025 be an electric or other zero-emission vehicle.
