More stringent limitations on gas-powered automobiles are going to be implemented by President Joe Biden and his administration in the near future in an effort to persuade American drivers to make the conversion to electric vehicles.
According to a recent report by Reuters, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which is currently under the administration of Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly planning to implement "sweeping cuts in vehicle emissions pollution that will push automakers towards a big increase in sales of electric vehicles." This is stated in the report.
In order for automakers to comply with the new standards, the sales of gasoline-powered vehicles will need to be drastically reduced. Environmental advocacy organizations and certain automakers are of the opinion that the implementation of this plan will result in at least fifty percent of the vehicle fleet in the United States being comprised of electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles by the year 2030. According to a separate report from Bloomberg, significant announcements related to these changes are likely to be made in Detroit on Wednesday. One of these announcements is believed to be that the modifications would not include an outright ban on gas-powered automobiles.
The Alliance for Automotive Innovation, a trade group that represents almost all automakers, including major players like Ford and Volkswagen, have voiced their concern over the timing of the move rather than the shift toward electric vehicles. This is because the Alliance for Automotive Innovation is more concerned about the timing of the move than the shift itself. Automobile manufacturers are concerned about the state of the present fleet of cars since they have no motivation to improve it at this time. They are aware that conventional automobiles will soon be phased out as electric vehicles become more popular. The Alliance also stated that "Every dollar invested in technology that uses internal combustion is a dollar that is not spent on technology that uses zero carbon."
In the meantime, electric car makers such as Tesla are pushing for even more stringent regulations on gas-powered vehicles. On the other hand, regular Americans who drive themselves to work are mostly ignored, and the implementation of these reforms may hurt Joe Biden's prospects of being re-elected in 2024.
The proposed laws, which focus on tailpipe emissions of carbon dioxide, smog-forming nitrogen oxide, and other forms of pollution from automobiles, could have an effect on vehicles made for model years 2027 through 2032. The transition to electric cars is unavoidable; nevertheless, the timing of the legislation and its implementation should take into consideration the concerns and interests of all parties concerned.
