EPA Rule Will Force Electric Vehicles on American Consumers

Today, the Biden administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enacted the strictest-ever tailpipe emissions rules, which would effectively require around 40% of new car sales to be electric by 2030 and 67% by 2032. This proposal has received significant pushback from auto manufacturers due to stalled demand for electric vehicles (EVs).

Below is a statement that can be attributed to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition and former senior advisor to U.S. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman:

“It’s so strange that the Biden Administration celebrates the U.S. taking the global lead in crude oil production by mandating more electric vehicles. Instead of working from our nation’s strength, the administration is trying to shoehorn bad policy as an answer in search of a problem. Consumers have spoken that they don’t want the electric vehicles, that our grid can’t charge anyways, and that rely on Chinese-controlled critical minerals.

The Biden administration should consider the facts when developing regulations. A rapid transition to electric vehicles would have dire consequences on consumers, manufacturers, our strained electrical grid, and continued overreliance on hostile nations.”
