Calif. Eyes Deal With Volvo As Trump Rolls Back Mileage Standards

"As the Trump administration finalizes its plan to roll back Obama-era mileage standards, California announced it would sign a deal with yet another automaker to produce cars meeting stricter standards.    

California Air Resources Board Chairwoman Mary Nichols said the state is finalizing an agreement with Volvo, joining four other automakers that have pledged to produce vehicles that could average 50 mpg by 2026.

“Volvo has notified us that they intend to deliver. We’re in the final stages of writing that agreement,” Nichols said."
