This Executive Order is based on emission testing Lightning Hybrids, LLC conducted
with the Lightning Hybrids ERS. The Air Resources Board reserves the right to conduct
additional emission tests in the future. If such test results demonstrate that the
Lightning Hybrids ERS adversely affects emissions, this Executive Order may be
rescinded. Further, if such test results or other evidence provides the Air Resources
Board with reasons to suspect that the Lightning Hybrids ERS will affect the durability of
the emission control system, Lightning Hybrids, LLC 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.

Lightning Hybrids LLC shall collect On—Board Diagnostic II (OBDII) mode $09 data upon
installation of the Lightning Hybrids ERS and again after approximately 6 months of
customer use for at least 5 vehicles from the 2016 model year to be provided within one
year of the first date of sale of the Hybrid System. If the mode $09 data demonstrate
that the Lightning Hybrids ERS does not comply with the minimum in—use monitor
performance rates specified in 13 CCR 1968.2, this Executive Order may be rescinded.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the
Lightning Hybrids ERS 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 Lightning Hybrids ERS, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Lightning Hybrids ERS 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 Lightning Hybrids ERS 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 Lightning Hybrids ERS advertised, or
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

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.
