Vice President Kamala Harris claimed the biggest obstacle to Americans buying electric cars — which cost an average of around $50,000 — is figuring out how to charge them.
“When we ask people, what’s the biggest barrier for them to buy an electric car? The answer is almost always figuring out where and how to charge it,” Harris tweeted Wednesday morning. “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest in a network of 500,000 chargers for all Americans for local & long-distance trips.”
The recently-passed trillion-dollar infrastructure bill set aside nearly $6 billion for the production of electric vehicles and charging stations. The legislation also offers a boost in the tax credit for some electric vehicle purchases from $7,500 to $12,500, which is expected to benefit the wealthy individuals who can afford electric vehicles.
