Just when you thought it was safe to drive a gas-powered vehicle again, the federal government has created a whole new set of roadblocks.

On Wednesday March 20, Biden and his climate change activists issued one of the most extreme regulations in the nation’s history; every new passenger car and light truck sold in the United States must be an EV (electric vehicle) or hybrid by 2032.

This is an audacious move not only because EV sales have slowed to a crawl but it’s also an election year and Michigan – with a huge number of voters in the car business – is in play.

Just last February, the EPA considered dialing back requirements for the auto industry when suddenly  – out of nowhere – they reversed course and turned the EV push into a shove.

Nearly three years in the making, the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations would fundamentally transform the American automobile market. Almost 1 million electric vehicles rolled off assembly lines last year, but they made up just 7 percent of total U.S. car sales, far from the 56 percent target under the new regulation. Many of those cars are sitting on dealer’s lots collecting dust.

In The Hole

Car manufacturers are losing billions on EVs. Ford predicts it will lose $4.5 billion this year. They lose nearly $60,000 for every electric vehicle sold. GM’s losses are just as bad. Chevy lost $7,400 for every Chevy Bolt that they sold – so much money, in fact, the model has been discontinued.

EVs have been estimated at up to 45 percent more expensive to produce than internal combustion engines, with a third of the cost attributed to the battery.

More Problems

Then there’s the continued lack of public charging. CNN Business estimates that the U.S. will need 182,000 fast chargers for EVs by 2030. There are currently fewer than 40,000 and about a quarter of those are in California.

Tax credits are available to help offset the cost of EVs, but the rules are complicated. Some come with restrictions on where the vehicle is built, where the battery pack and parts are from, the price of the vehicle, and the household income of the buyer.

It all boils down to this: with the exception of a few brands (Tesla), people don’t like them. Even more, they don’t like them being jammed down their throats.

The Biden Administration’s Environmental Agenda includes a wide range of rules, according to the New York Times:

  • Gas Permit Pause: Louisiana and 15 other states sued the Biden administrationover its decision to stop approving new permits for facilities that export liquefied natural gas. LNG is the cleanest form of fossil fuel.
  • Tailpipe Rule: This climate regulation will ensure that the majority of new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the U.S. are all-electric or hybridsby 2032.
  • Green Economy: The climate law that President Biden signed has created a number of challenges. Wind and solar power has grown rapidly, but inflation, rising interest rates and the increased costs of building materials have forced developers to renegotiate or even cancel projects.

The division between the federal government elite and the average American continues. The battle against gas powered cars rages on, car manufacturers continue hemorrhaging money and the government that is supposed to be for the people by the people no longer gives a damn what you want or think.
