Automakers should be more involved in the development of electric vehicles

According to a source, Democrats of the US House of Representatives have proposed a new plan to bring the US economy to zero emissions by 2050. It includes large-scale use of green energy, and new infrastructure, and tax breaks, and, of course, electric cars.

The new US state program provides for a complete transition to electric cars by 2035

The concept proposed on 538 pages provides for the reduction of harmful emissions resulting from the activities of electric companies to zero by 2040, as well as the production of electric vehicles exclusively by all US automakers in 2035. It also envisages the introduction of stricter standards for the emission of methane into the atmosphere (it increases the greenhouse effect much more than CO 2 ), increasing the energy efficiency of buildings, and extending tax benefits for solar and wind energy until 2025.

Despite the fact that now is not the best time in the USA for a transition to alternative energy sources (the coronavirus pandemic is raging in the country, and the unrest caused by the death of George Floyd has not stopped yet), the Chairman of the House Committee on Climate Crisis) noted that “ We can’t wait any longer .” The Harvard University study, which revealed a direct relationship between air pollution and a higher mortality rate from coronavirus, was justified.

The program has to go through many more approvals before it is approved as a bill, but many hope that it will nevertheless be adopted. In this case, US automakers slowing down the development of electric vehicles will face an unpleasant surprise.
