“Electric vehicle adoption is a win/win for people, governments and the environment. Many groups and diverse stakeholders with a broad range of concerns and interests stand to benefit from state and local policies that advance electric transportation and charging infrastructure.”
See Model State & Local Policies to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption
Amazing! The Sierra Club and Plug In America present an expansive list of actions and the states that took those actions in their report. The diversity of methods is remarkable. It shows that EVs are popular for all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons.
Where I live, renewable energy is the norm on the grid. It just makes sense to shift the money being spent importing petroleum products to run gas-guzzlers to creating jobs and supporting businesses and communities where the people live. EVs can do that and the transition will take only a few years with such policies in place. People would be foolish to buy a gas-guzzler when EVs are so practical and affordable.
In my case, I take a few trips a year on the highway to visit relatives and otherwise stick close to home hunting, gathering, shopping and doing errands. I just don’t have a need for a five-seater truck disguised as a car. The little Electra Meccanica Solo will do the job. It’s easy to drive, very efficient in use of energy, has no oil-changes, has a low price compared to other EVs and gas-guzzlers… It’s the right car for me and it has all the advantages of EVs like being low in maintenance and less polluting.
