Despite the Incessant Push for Electric Cars, Report Claims Americans Nearly Half Regret Purchases

Although liberals have been pushing for the need for electric vehicles to placate the climate change agenda, most Americans regret buying electric cars.

A recent study reveals that 46 percent of Americans who purchased an electric vehicle regret the decision and plan on making their next purchase a vehicle with an internal combustion engine.

Most Americans have also decreased their support in phasing out gasoline vehicles in the last two years. 

“The share of Americans who favor phasing out gas-powered vehicles has declined 7 points since 2021. Support is down among both Democrats and Republicans,” the Pew Research report claims.

Like many of Biden's plans, the result is a lose-lose situation for both political parties as well as manufacturers and the consumers.

The problem with the Biden administration is that when federal powers seek to control the market, there is often an imbalance between supply and demand.  As the Daily Wire suggests, “the EV industry has significantly cooled off over the last couple of years with some manufacturers having to declare bankruptcy amid low demand for the vehicles. Numerous companies have been forced to scrap their plans to build EVs or cancel their plans to go all electric. An executive of another EV company was recently sentenced to federal prison for lying to investors about the abilities of his company.”

Now companies have been ruined, Americans are unsatisfied with their purchases, and yet, the left continues to push for all vehicles to be electric by 2035. Was this not supposed to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people?
