Abstract:

"California and several northeastern states have adopted or are considering legislation that would require automobile manufacturers--both foreign and domestic--to supply some 70,000 electric vehicles in 1998 and nearly a million by 2003. Uncertainties about the readiness of electric vehicle technology led the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology to ask GAO to compare electric vehicle development and commercialization programs internationally. In particular, the Committee asked GAO to review other nations' programs that might inform current and proposed U.S.policies and programs to support electric vehicles. Reviewing programs in France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, as well as the United States, GAO sought to answer the following questions: (1) What are the current barriers to the widespread introduction of electric vehicles? (2) What are the nature and extent of other nations' policies and programs for developing, producing, and promoting electric vehicles? (3) What are the likely effects of introducing electric vehicles in terms of costs to the individual, national energy savings, and effects on the environment?"--Page 2.
