                               EXECUTIVE ORDER B—68
                 Relating to Conversion of Motor Vehicles to Electricity


                                 Zelectric Motors, LLC
                                Zelectric EV Retrofit 1.0


Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section
39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012; and

Pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43004, which provides, in pertinent part,
that the standards applicable for exhaust emissions for gasoline—powered motor vehicles
shall apply to motor vehicles which have been modified or altered to use a fuel other
than gasoline or diesel; and

Pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43006, which provides that the
Air Resources Board may certify the fuel system of any motor vehicle powered by a fuel
other than gasoline or diesel which meets the standards specified by Section 43004;
and

Pursuant to Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395, which provide in pertinent part
that the prohibitions in Section 27156 and Section 38391, respectively, regarding
alterations, modifications or modifying devices, apparatuses or mechanisms
which modify or alter the original design or performance of required motor vehicle or
off—highway motor vehicle pollution control devices or systems shall not apply to
alterations, modifications, or modifying devices, apparatuses, or mechanisms found by
the Air Resources Board to not reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle or
off—highway motor vehicle pollution control devices or result in emissions from any such
modified or altered vehicle or off—highway vehicle which are at levels which comply with
existing state or federal standards for the model year of the vehicle or off—highway motor
vehicle being modified or converted;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the Zelectric EV Retrofit 1.0 electric vehicle
conversion kit manufactured by Zelectric Motors, LLC of 4476 Osprey Street, San
Diego, CA 92107 is approved for installation on 1973—1974 model—year on—road/highway
vehicles originally incorporating a gasoline engine listed in Exhibit A, of this document.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That because the motor vehicles converted in
accordance with the systems covered by this order are powered by battery—stored
electricity and have no on—board systems which consume any fuel other than electricity;
the vehicles have no exhaust emissions and therefore comply with the exhaust emission
standards applicable to 1973—1974 model—year gasoline powered light—duty motor
vehicles.


                                              4.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That because the motor vehicles converted in
accordance with the systems covered by this order have no parts that affect emissions
for which there is an applicable emission requirement, the conversion system
manufacturer is not required to provide an emission control system warranty pursuant to
Health and Safety Code Section 43205 or 43205.5, or Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Sections 2035 et seq, 2425, 2435 and 2436. Motor vehicles converted in
accordance with the system covered by this order shall not be equipped with any
on—board system which consumes any fuel other than electricity. Any changes to the
design or operating conditions of their system which violates this condition shall
invalidate this Executive Order.
