The US is considering dropping strict requirements for new electric cars

The market for electric cars is on the verge of a huge slowdown in several places around the world, and now the US government is considering relaxing future requirements for the country's car industry.

By 2032 at the latest, 67 percent of all new passenger cars and light vans in the United States must be electric. This is how it looks right now.

However, the reality is also that the market for electric cars is about to slow down considerably. And that the restructuring of transport that the politicians envision may be slower. Or maybe look completely different.

For the same reason, the US government led by President Joe Biden is now considering relaxing the aforementioned requirement.

The New York Times writes that.

According to the newspaper, the plan for the 67 percent new electric cars is still the goal of the US government, but the legislation is no longer the same speed.

The government has apparently changed its position after massive pressure from the car industry. From this, it sounds like the current deadline is too strict.

There is simply not enough time to roll out a nationwide network of public charging stations, which are necessary for electric cars to cope at all.

Furthermore, the car manufacturers do not believe that the goal of 67 percent can be reached before 2032. For that, electric cars are simply still too expensive.

Finally, the car industry warns that a too rapid transition to exclusively building electric cars will cost jobs in the industry. Both General Motors, Stellantis and Ford have said so.
