Rethinking The Green New Deal

What would it take to replace all gas-powered cars with zero-emission vehicles in the United States?


Political will and participation from every aspect of the transportation ecosystem: government, private sector, and consumers. Entities with the goal of getting to universal adoption of zero-emission vehicles have to think about user experience at the forefront. For example, the charge rate of electric vehicles and availability of charing infrastructure must improve to sway users to leave behind gas-powered vehicles. For get to this type of system and user experience, investment in battery technology and investment in public charging infrastructure proliferate.
