Want to see do you want that money, or should we build a standard charging infrastructure
Let's keep the politics out of here that's how threads get shut downMost folks probably would like both. The fact is, they don't have to be mutually exclusive.
The tax credit went away due to the efforts of a certain senator from WV. That same senator may eventually attempt to throw a wrench in the works for that charger network, too… We’ll have to wait and see.
The individual you are eluding to isn't against electric vehicles, the individual is against rewarding the purchase of a vehicle that is purchased outside the US or even the fact the government is rewarding for a life style vehicle, vs ( insert US MANUFACTURED...I MEAN ASSEMBLED IN US MADE IN MEXICO AUTO)...The same individual tries hard to keep that state employed due to coal mining that is the only large scale industry in that state, which is also used to produce electricity...well I like electricity, cause we all need that to charge our EV's. There are politicians saying A) we need electric vehicles, B) we need to shut down power plants cause they are bad. I lived in Hawaii for 20 years, a great place for an electric car, but the grid hasn't evolved since the 40s, and no one wants to invest out there cause it's a hard state to do business, ie: expensive, it's an island, high taxes, everything has to come on a ship. The belief that EV's are going to magically save the earth isn't the overall answer, it's shifting the blame...if we are trying to save the air quality, stop drilling oil, mining coal, going nuclear we all need to ride bicycles.Not attempting to be political, just explaining why the law passed in the current form and fashion.
Ignoring the fact that there are anti-EV forces doesn’t somehow remove them from the equation.
