The problem is that no one needs to buy an EV or plug-in hybrid. But with CAFE standards doubling to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025 and California's mandate that major manufacturers sell zero-emission vehicles as a percentage of their overall fleets (a measure also adopted by 13 other states), carmakers <em>have to</em> sell EVs and plug-in hybrids to avoid costly penalties or face caps on the number of vehicles they are allowed to sell.<br /><br /><hr style="width: 630px;" />
