General Motors is advocating for a new nationwide program that promotes electric cars and other zero-emissions vehicles. The so-called “National Zero Emission Vehicle (NZEV) program” would potentially put 7 million “long-range” EVs on the road by 2030 and reduce CO2 emissions by 375 million tons.
GM is also calling for more investment into electric charging infrastructure, and it’s encouraging the government to support EV and battery technology in order to keep pace with countries like China.
A single, 50-state solution will help move the US to a leadership position in electrification. It will create jobs through the expansion of battery and electric vehicle research and development and production, improve the environment and make electric vehicles more affordable. The stakes are high, and time is short.
