                             Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                     A123Systems, Inc.
                            L5 Battery Range Extender Modules
                      Off—Vehicle Charge Capable Conversion System

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the L5 Battery Range Extender
Modules (BREM) off—vehicle charge capable (OVCC) conversion system, manufactured by
A123Systems, Inc. of 10 Avenue E, Hopkinton, Massachusetts 01748, has been found not
to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system, and therefore,
the L5 BREM OVCC conversion system is exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code for installation on 2004 through 2009 model—year Toyota Motor
Corporation 1.5 liter Prius hybrid—electric vehicles.

This exemption is based on evaluation of the L5 BREM OVCC conversion system under the
"Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts" (Procedures), last amended
June 1, 1990. Exemption of the L5 BREM OVCC conversion system under these
Procedures is limited to sales of five hundred (500) L5 BREM OVCC conversion systems.

The L5 BREM OVCC conversion system includes a lithium ion add—on battery pack, a
current sensor, battery temperature sensors, and a controller.

This Executive Order is based on emission testing A123Systems, Iinc. conducted with the
L5 BREM OVCC conversion system. The Air Resources Board reserves the right to
conduct additional emission tests in the future. If such test results demonstrate that the L5
BREM OVCC conversion system adversely affects emissions, this Executive Order shall be
effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated. Further, if such test
results or other evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the
L5 BREM OVCC conversion system will affect the durability of the emission control system,
A123Systems, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of
the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or
modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the L5 BREM OVCC
conversion system do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the L5 BREM OVCC conversion
system, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of
the vehicle‘s emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.


                                                 7.

Marketing of the L5 BREM OVCC conversion system using identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive
Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

Exemption of the L5 BREM OVCC conversion system shall not be construed as exemption
to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the system as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any L5 BREM OVCC conversion system advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer
to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the L5
BREM OVCC conversion system may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved -by the Air Resources Board," may be made with
respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

in addition to the foregoing, the Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to
review this Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted
add—on or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of California Code
of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF A123SYSTEMS, INC—‘S
L5 BATTERY RANGE EXTENDER MODULES OFF—VEHICLE CHARGE CAPABLE

Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention
to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive Order may
request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it
shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request, and the Executive Order may not be
revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

supersedes Executive Order D—647—1, dated December 8, 2008.

Executed at El Monte, California, this       ] 7      day of February 2010.
