Electric vehicles are coming. Do you hear them? (Probably not.)
The exact speed of our collective embrace of electric vehicles (EVs) will vary around the country—due to factors such as EV familiarity, vehicle availability, purchase prices and incentives—but the cars are coming down the road at a steady clip. In the immediate future, U.S. President Joe Biden has greatly prioritized climate, and especially green energy. Further out, some statistics show that the annual global share of new passenger EVs is increasing by 50% every year, meaning EVs could make up a majority of all light-duty vehicle sales by 2028. Other statistics show that 52% of new vehicle sales will be all-electric by 2030.
