The new website, using information collected for vehicle certification in California, offers a practical system that ranks vehicles according to their emission characteristics and provides tools to compare models.

"Until now, decisions about car buying were based solely on what functions the car needed to serve," said ARB Chairman Mary D. Nichols. ""This new website will take the guesswork out of buying the cleanest car and help consumers find rebates, tax breaks and other incentives."
