‘These cars are not a practical solution’

Electric vehicles have been dubbed “not practical” as Joe Biden ramps up plans to force them onto Americans.

The US President is laying the groundwork for 67 per cent of new vehicles to be electric by 2032


But he faces logistical troubles with some doubting whether such radical change is realistic.

CEO of Baxter Auto Group, Mickey Anderson, is concerned about the plan, suggesting there is too much “range anxiety” amongst Americans when it comes to the usage of electric vehicles.

“Range anxiety is to some irrational phobia”, he said.

“It is the actual utility of the vehicle, particularly in markets where we have stores.

“Think about Colorado, where we have extremes of elevation and temperature and these cars are just not practical solutions for the majority of Americans.

“The current offerings of electric vehicles are expensive and the infrastructure just doesn’t exist to make them useful for most Americans today.”

The new rules are set to be imposed as the Biden administrations attempts to crack down on greenhouse gas emissions.

The EU has ambitious plans of it own, with 100 per cent of new cars to be electric by 2035.

“It might be achievable, but what seems unachievable is getting that amount of consumer adoption that quickly”, he said.

“There are real logistical limitations to what the American consumer is willing or at this point interested in buying.

“What we’re seeing in US car dealerships across the country is demand for these products that runs well below the supply.

“It would be extraordinary below ambitions at this point.”
