By 2030, 50% of cars sold in the United States should be cars with electric motors – this is the goal set by the administration of President Joe Biden. According to an explanatory note distributed by the White House on Thursday, the president will sign an executive order on this day outlining measures aimed at achieving this goal.
In particular, new fuel efficiency standards will be developed to reduce environmental pollution and prevent further climate change on the planet. Other measures will be aimed at promoting innovation in the automotive industry and creating new high-paying jobs.
“The global market is moving to electric vehicles and using their potential to save families money, reduce environmental pollution and make the air we breathe cleaner,” the White House said in a note.- Even though the United States was a pioneer in the development of technology, today, they are lagging behind in the race to create such cars and batteries for them. Today, the American market for electric vehicles accounts for only one-third of the Chinese market for cars with electric motors. The President believes that the time has come for the United States to become a leader in the production of electric vehicles, infrastructure, and innovation.”
