I understand that California has some air quality concerns which are in need of correction. However, when looking at the big picture, why can't Honda just mass produce their cars with the lower emission equipment? It may add a couple of hundred dollars to the cost of each car, but would we not all benefit? The flipside would be the accolades and praise from the press, enviro groups and hippies. Wouldn't that prove to everyone without a doubt that Honda not only creates this great technology, but proves they are a TRUE leader!
