EVs, Elon Musk, And The U.S. Midterms – And WHY You Should Care!

From Transport Evolved.

Today – March 1 – is the start of the U.S. Midterm election season. And while the final midterms won’t take place until November, we thought it would be a good chance to point out why electric cars and clean energy policies could end up playing a larger part in the midterms than they have before. We thought we’d explain why EVs are no-longer a partisan issue, and explain why picking the candidate that supports EVs and clean energy might not be as straightforward as you think.
