“Everything that moves is going electric”

Jeff Allen, Executive Director, Forth

Ten years ago, electric vehicles were just beginning to enter the US market. In 2022, 18.8% of all new cars sold in California (and 5.8% nationwide) were electric. Dozens of countries, states, and major automakers have set definite and legally binding deadlines to end the sale of new internal combustion vehicles altogether. Meanwhile, we are seeing the rapid deployment of electric buses, trucks, tractors and more. Electric transportation will play a pivotal role in meeting our climate targets. What is the state of the industry today? What is coming next? And what are the technologies and policies that are needed to sustain this momentum?
