Most voters approve of the EPA’s proposed new vehicle emissions standards when they learn about them. Charging concerns continue to rank as high as costs as a barrier to EV interest. 64% of voters support EPA’s new proposed light- and medium-duty vehicle rules. 72% support building electric vehicle plants in their state. Cost is no longer voters’ top concern regarding electric vehicles: 23% (the most-commonly cited reason) say there aren’t enough charging stations (compared to 22% who say EVs are too expensive).
