Many Americans Still Shying Away from EVs Despite Biden's Push: AP-NORC/EPIC Poll

Despite Joe Biden's push to raise EV sales, American drivers are still reluctant to purchase all-electric vehicles. According to the AP-NORC/EPIC poll, less than 50% of U.S. adults are at least somewhat likely to buy an EV the next time they purchase a vehicle, while 46% are not too likely or not at all likely to buy one. High prices and a lack of easy-to-find charging stations are major obstacles for potential EV buyers. The poll also found that only 13% of U.S. adults own or lease an electric vehicle, while 4 in 10 say they would be at least somewhat likely to consider buying one the next time they purchase a vehicle.

The results of the poll show that EV adoption in the United States will face resistance under Biden's plan to raise EV sales significantly by 2032. The EPA requires that about 56% of all new vehicle sales be electric by 2032, along with at least 13% plug-in hybrids or other partially electric cars.
