California ’s request to administer standards for motor vehicle emissions of CO2 are, in fact, fuel economy standards. The federal government has been and should continue to be the focal point of such requirements. Furthermore, we are determined to work with the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the State of California and others to enhance and increase the fuel efficiency and advanced technology of our vehicle offerings for consumers from coast-to-coast and in every state.
As we said in Los Angeles two years ago, GM wants to remove the automobile from the environmental equation and we are well underway in these efforts. For example, this coming year we will offer 8 hybrid models, 12 flexible fuel vehicle models, and the largest customer-driven fuel-cell test fleet in the world with Project Driveway putting more than 100 Chevrolet Equinox fuel cell vehicles on the road. We are also committed to developing more electrically-driven vehicles, including plug-in hybrids, and extended range electric vehicles such as the Chevrolet Volt.
