EVs are finally turning a corner in the minds of U.S. car buyers. Gone is the stigma and the trepidation, to some degree. There’s excitement around the Tesla brand that has allowed our brand to rise and grow, and in the process, bring young engineering students into the process of building Electric Vehicles.
There are so many reasons to pull the trigger on combustion vehicles right now. It’s about environmentalism and getting a grip of our own market. No longer having our economy beholden to O.P.E.C. will be a massive factor in a positive U.S. future.
As of right now, there are a whopping 19 electric vehicles on the U.S. market, and only two of those are Teslas. That leaves so many options, including U.S. options, for those trying to avoid buying imported cars. And there are many different kinds of EVs for the market, too– not just the family sedan. There are SUVs, sports cars, hatchbacks, even a MINI.
The Volkswagen ID.4 has already sold out its first production run— which says a lot about the kind of machine Volkswagen is offering and how willing EV converts are to take advantage of it. I know someone who is absolutely beside himself with excitement over the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which says a lot for an American-made EV. The power that Ford has managed to put into an EV is impressive and should do a lot to shoo off the naysayers.
With the market beginning to open up, this is an excellent time to resolve to stop buying gas combustion vehicles (or even hybrids) and open up to the new line of readily-available EVs on the market. And if your needs are for a short-range runabout that can get you here and there, there’s also the Switch– certainly the cheapest of all the listed options!
