8 states pledge 3.3 million clean cars by 2025

Battery-powered cars, plug-in hybrids and hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles: the presence of all zero-emissions vehicles on the road is about to multiply significantly in 8 U.S. states.

The agreement, signed by the governors of New York and California -- and also Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont -- calls for 3.3 million zero-emissions cars by 2025, up from the 165,000 currently on the road and 15 times the amount projected for 2015.
