Such a rapid introduction of electric vehicles faces significant hurdles such as improved charging infrastructure, consumer acceptance and low vehicle costs.

“Today, Ford, GM, and Stellantis announce their joint goal of achieving 40-50% of annual U.S. volume sales by electric vehicles (battery-electric, fuel-cell, and plug-in hybrid vehicles) by 2030 to bring the nation closer to a zero – emission future in line with the Paris climate goals.
