Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle
Are we cheating with this one? It’s not really one specific car we’re talking about, but a category of vehicle that, believe it or not, is currently available in well-known brands. Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicles emit no evaporative emissions. We like to call them “green machines” for their ability to reduce smog, but PZEVs don’t completely eradicate the burning of gasoline. Add on the fact that they’re more expensive to manufacture and most U.S. states only recently started adopting the California Air Resources Board standards. Beyond the 2017 models, PZEV will be removed as a classification and will simply be technology worked into future car models.
