The California Air Resources Board (ARB) kicked off the Zero-Emission Vehicle College Tour 2002 at California State University, Sacramento, providing the students, faculty, and others the opportunity to see various clean vehicles first-hand and ask questions about the technologies used to power them. Participants also got hands-on experience behind the wheel of zero-emission and hybrid-electric vehicles. A Toyota RAV4 EV, Honda Insight, Toyota Prius, natural gas Honda Civic, single-passenger Sparrow, E-scooter, and E-bike were all on display. Common questions were about the range of a vehicle, performance, cost, convenience and refueling time. More than 60 drivers got behind the wheel at the ride-and-drive portion of the event.
