Electric vehicles

We have all the tools to build an electric vehicle future — we just have to use them.

Whether you own an electric car, or you’re figuring out if an EV is right for you, or you just think electric cars are cool — we can all get excited about the benefits of putting more EVs on the road. Cleaner cars mean cleaner air, healthier communities and a safer climate.

And why wait, when electric vehicles are ready to roll across the country, and we’re closer than ever to a future where our kids ride electric buses to school, our mail and packages arrive on electric trucks, and most new cars sold get plugged in at night? Together, we can accelerate the transition to an electric vehicle future.

One of the primary barriers to putting even more EVs on the road is lack of access to public charging stations — which is why we're urging governors across the country to invest in charging infrastructure.

Take action with us.
