Subaru Recognized for Cleaner Vehicles at EPA Tier 2 Event
What: Subaru will be recognized among other automakers by the Environmental Protection Agency for producing cleaner vehicles in 2004. The cleaner vehicles meet the new EPA Tier 2 standard. The Tier 2 emissions standards are the first EPA standards to apply equally to both cars and light trucks. The federal Tier 2 standards are also equivalent to the more stringent California LEV II emissions standards which are also being phased in starting with the 2004 models. Additionally, the Tier 2 vehicle emissions standards are the first EPA vehicle standards that include parallel standards for cleaner, low-sulfur gasoline. All Subaru 2.5-liter naturally aspirated products manufactured at Subaru Indiana Automotive (Subaru Baja, Legacy, and Outback) are Tier 2, Bin 5. Subaru Legacy and Outback models with 2.5-liter engines distributed for sale in California (and in Northeast states which have adopted California Specification Emission Control Systems and are registered for use in those states) are specially equipped to meet the California Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV credited SULEV2) requirements. Subaru executives will be available for interviews. Who: Don Bearden, Director, Government Relations, Subaru of America, Inc.
