[sarcasm]Yep, yep. I'm sure that's right. After all, the last 4 years with a administration trying to stop any chance of slowing climate destruction, there was no development in EVs[/sarcasm]


I thought that your political views weren't welcome here.


They're ok with me. I mean his statement is true!


I'm not sure what is political about that statement. From what I see, there was no pause then increase in the development of EVs related to the changes in administrations.
And like the policy or not, there are many recordings of 45 promising (threating?) to block all environmental regulations. Also many recordings of him bragging he did block.

To increase sales of electric vehicles, the administration plans to spend $15 billion to build a half-million charging stations by 2030 as well as offer unspecified tax credits and rebates to cut the cost.

However, experts say it will be difficult to replace the 279 million passenger vehicles now on U.S. roads — most of which burn gasoline — with electric vehicles in less than 15 years. The average U.S. vehicle is now nearly 12 years old, so they stay on the roads longer than in the past. And without an immediate change, the number of gasoline-powered vehicles will continue to grow. IHS Markit predicts it will be 284 million by 2025.

Each year, automakers sell about 17 million new vehicles in the U.S., most of them running on gasoline. If every new vehicle sold were electric starting today, it would take more than 16 years to replace all the gasoline vehicles.


$15 BILLION for 500,000 chargers equates to $30,000 each. Hmmm, on a different thread, I used the $30k price tag when discussing the cost for campgrounds to install EV chargers and was "ridiculed"; now I am proved correct--price tag is $30k not $3-5k.
