Biden Plans an Electric Vehicle Revolution. Now, the Hard Part.
The administration is pushing for more electric vehicle sales, but manufacturers and consumers are resistant, as well as legal challenges.
WASHINGTON - The Biden administration's aggressive rules to speed up the transition of the United States to electric vehicles and to reduce the dangerous pollution from autos that are heating up the earth face many economic, logistical, and legal challenges.
The Environmental Protection Agency announced plans on Wednesday to make sure that by 2032, two thirds of all new cars sold in the United States will be electric. The regulations, if implemented as proposed, would be a major leap forward for the US auto industry, which last year sold only 5.8 percent new cars and fewer than 2 percent trucks that were all-electric.
