EPA Administrator claims no punishment for Americans not purchasing EVs

EPA administrator Michael Regan told CNN on Wednesday that there would be "absolutely no punishment" for those who don't purchase electric vehicles (EVs) as part of the Biden administration's climate agenda and EV push.  "CNN News Central" host Sara Sidner noted polling that found 41% of Americans would not buy an EV and just 12% were seriously considering it. She asked Regan if Americans would be punished if they don't buy an EV in the time frame the administration provided.  "Absolutely no punishment, Sara. Listen, we’re thinking out for the future. This proposed technology standards for automobiles, it doesn’t kick in until model year 2027 and beyond, so what we’re looking at is a ramp up period. We know that in the next couple of years, we’re going to see automobile manufacturers offer a suite of products that will be attractive to consumers. We know that we’ll see charging stations all across this country so that we can reduce that range anxiety and those who are concerned about where they can charge and people will have a number of years that they can take advantage of these tax credits, and so we’re going to see a massive build up over the next couple of years," he said.

      The tax credits and incentives will influence the embrace of EVs but no coercion needed.

            Let those that see the need of EVs buy them, with time the influence will trickle down to them as well

              We don't need a carrot and stick approach on EVs, we need to educate people more on why the shift is needed.
