BOMBSHELL: Massive EV Owner Backlash

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging

(DailyEmailNews.com) – In a shift countering the narratives of the left and the mainstream media, nearly half of American electric vehicle (EV) owners are now contemplating a switch back to internal combustion engine vehicles for their next car purchase.

A study by the consulting giant McKinsey and Company indicates that approximately 46% of EV owners in the U.S. prefer to revert to conventional vehicles, driven by concerns such as the insufficient charging infrastructure and the high costs associated with electric vehicles, The Daily Caller reports.

This sentiment appears to challenge the Biden administration’s aggressive advocacy for electric vehicles.

According to the study, a significant portion of consumers, 46%, expressed their reluctance or strong disinclination to opt for an EV in their future automotive purchases, as evidenced in a poll conducted in June by The Associated Press and the University of Chicago’s Energy Policy Institute.

Furthermore, the study by McKinsey reveals that 58% of Americans are inclined to retain their current vehicles for an extended period, while 44% are likely to delay any potential transition to electric vehicles.

This reluctance is underscored by the slow progression of the Biden administration’s initiative, which allocated $7.5 billion for the development of public EV charging stations, yet only a minimal number have been constructed nearly three years into the program.

In its ambitious environmental and automotive policies, the Biden administration aims for electric vehicles to constitute half of all new car sales by 2030.

In support of this goal, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented rigorous regulations in March that mandate automotive manufacturers to ensure that up to 56% of their light-duty vehicles are electric by 2032.

The EPA has also established stringent emissions standards for medium- and light-duty vehicles. Concurrently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has adopted fuel economy standards that further compel manufacturers toward increased production of electric vehicles.

Despite these substantial governmental investments to encourage both the manufacture and acquisition of electric vehicles, manufacturers continue to report significant financial losses on their electric vehicle lines.

According to data from Cox Automotive, electric vehicles constituted less than 10% of total U.S. auto sales in 2023.
