The Future of EVs: Biden’s Mandate and Its Impact on You

In this episode of the Energy Show with REI Energy, host Mike Mauceli and guest Jason Hayes, Director of Energy and Environmental Policy for the Mackinac Center of Public Policy, discuss the Biden administration's implementation of new EPA tailpipe emission standards, and how the standards aim to significantly reduce CO2 emissions per mile, effectively mandating a shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) due to the inability of current gas and hybrid vehicles to meet these requirements.

The conversation covers the potential economic and logistical challenges for consumers, including the high cost of EV ownership, the impact on insurance, and the difficulties associated with charging infrastructure, especially for those living in multifamily housing.

Furthermore, they discuss the broader implications on the auto industry, supply chains, and the environment, questioning the feasibility of achieving the administration's goal of 70% of new car sales being electric by 2032 without significant societal and technological hurdles.
