Statement on Administration EV Charging, Affordability Programs

WASHINGTON, DC – Alliance for Automotive Innovation today released the following statement on Biden administration initiatives to expand and improve public electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the country.

John Bozzella, president and CEO of Alliance for Automotive Innovation, said:

“America’s EV transformation goes hand-in-hand with reliable EV charging infrastructure. You can’t have one without the other.

“That’s why recent investments and tax credits to build, repair and make public EV charging infrastructure more affordable – especially in urban and rural communities, schools, parks and multi-family housing – is an important and welcome policy development. We’ve got to build EV charging – everywhere.

“Charging might not be top of mind if you have access in your garage, but that’s the exception in the U.S. Getting more Americans comfortable with going electric starts with making sure they’ve got access – no matter their zip code – to reliable and ubiquitous public charging.”
