Electric Transportation Industry Conference is a new show only in
name, as ETIC is a logical evolution of the NAEVI events run in
past years by the Electric Vehicle Association of the Americas.
The event this year reflected burgeoning interest in and successful
commercialization of hybrid electric vehicles as witnessed by the
Insight and Prius from Honda and Toyota, and hundreds of hybrid-electric
buses now on order from Orion Bus Industries by New York City; and
was of course the industry event for the nascent fuel cell vehicle
ETIC venue was Sacramento, Calif., capitol of the state with the
most aggressive electric vehicle commercialization effort in the
country, as a nominal 10% (and true 4%) of all vehicles sold by
major automakers in California must be Zero Emission Vehicles, i.e.
electrics, starting with model year 2003. West Sacramento is the
home of the California Fuel Cell Partnership, a unique grouping
of private companies (including automotive OEMs) and government
agencies thats to start serious fleet trials of fuel cell
vehicles in 2002.
