  • In a collective plea, around 4,000 U.S. car dealers are urging President Biden to reevaluate proposed emissions regulations aimed at achieving a goal of two-thirds of new passenger cars being all-electric by 2032.
  • According to these dealers, consumer interest in electric vehicles (EVs) is lacking, leading to an accumulation of EV inventory on dealership lots.
  • The group, identifying as “EV Voice of the Consumer,” asserts that neighborhood car dealerships serve as a reliable indicator of consumer sentiment. Their alarm highlights a growing disparity between the supply of EVs and the actual demand from customers.
