The cars you pass on your daily commute, the vans delivering packages in your neighborhood, the yellow bus dropping your kids off at school — more likely than not, they all run on fossil fuels. But they don’t have to.
We’re paving the way to transition our country to clean electric vehicles — and it can’t happen fast enough, given that transportation is now America’s No. 1 source of planet-warming carbon emissions, and that tailpipe pollution cuts short an estimated 58,000 lives in our country each year.
Fortunately, an electric vehicle future is on the horizon. We’re calling on our leaders to buy more electric school and transit buses, switch to electric delivery trucks and corporate fleets, and pass policies that make it easier for more Americans to go electric.
