Just 19 percent say they’re ‘very likely’ to buy an EV as Biden pushes rule that would make them commonplace
(Collin Anderson, Washington Free Beacon) Less than one-fifth of Americans say they’re very likely to make their next vehicle an electric one, a new poll shows. That isn’t stopping President Joe Biden from pushing a rule that would force U.S. automakers to sell electric cars.
Just 19 percent of Americans say it’s “very” or “extremely” likely they’ll purchase an electric vehicle when they need a new car, according to a new Associated Press poll, while 22 percent say they’re “somewhat likely” to do so. Nearly half of respondents, meanwhile, say they aren’t likely to go electric, citing the high cost associated with electric vehicles as the main deterrent. Electric vehicles on average cost at least $10,000 more than their gas-powered counterparts.
Despite America’s hesitance toward electric cars, Biden is barreling forward with an environmental rule that would effectively mandate an electric vehicle revolution. The Democrat’s Environmental Protection Agency is expected to announce…Americans Aren’t Sold on Electric Cars. Biden Wants to Force Automakers to Sell Them Anyway.
