Trump Vs Biden: The Politics Of Plug-Ins And What May Change

President-elect Biden is expected to support EVs more than outgoing President Trump.

In a little more than two months, America will be swearing a new President, as President-elect Biden will become the 46th President of the United States. On the surface, it seems like electric vehicles may get more support under a Biden Administration than they did under President Trump, however, only time will tell. 

Fueling that speculation is the fact that President-elect Biden frequently spoke about the need for the country to accelerate its transition to cleaner electric vehicles during his run for President. On the other side, President Trump has been a vocal opponent of strict CAFE regulations and instructed the EPA to roll back emission standards, allowing manufacturers to sell less fuel-efficient cars and light-duty trucks.
