The purpose of this report is to summarize the efforts which have been made to characterize the 49-state vehicle population in California and in each of the Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) areas. The original intent of characterization of the 49-state vehicle population was to provide a basis to develop measures to limit the use of or emission rates of 49-state vehicles, which in turn will reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC), carbon monoxide (CO), and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from vehicles in the FIP areas. Since VOC and NOx standards for these vehicles are less stringent than those for California vehicles, one of the purposes of this effort is to determine if emission reductions from 49-state vehicles could significantly contribute to achieving attainment through the FIPs.
