Biden makes electric pitch at Ford plant: “There’s no turning back” – THE DETROIT NEWS
We’ve talked about the EV revolution for years. The delay was never about the technology. Heck, there’s people out there running cars on everything from soybeans to limes to hydrogen fuel (yes…that’s water).
No the reason we haven’t seen mass adoption of EV’s (or any of the other zero emission options) is twofold: style and affordability. Hybrid or electric options have always been either really expensive or really ugly. No more.

Part of the President’s plan includes a phrase we have not heard much over the past 20 years, and especially with respect to manufacturing. Of course, we are referring to Biden’s promise to “secure a domestic EV supply chain, ensure a nationwide network of charging stations, make EVs accessible to average consumers and do it with a unionized workforce.”
