White House announces public, private EV commitments

To support the United States government’s plan to have 50% of all new vehicles in the country be electric by 2030, the White House has announced key public and private commitments throughout the nation. 

Today companies and nonprofits including Blink Charging, the National Automobile Dealers Association, Pacific Gas & Electric, Uber, ZipCar and others, are announcing new commitments to expand EV fleets, increase consumer education, and grow the availability of EV charging, according to a White House release.

Besides electric vehicle (EV) sales tripling, the number of publicly available charging ports in the US has grown by more than 40% since the start of President Biden’s administration. Currently, there are more than 3 million EVs and over 135,000 public EV chargers across the country.
