  • Within 20 years 3/4 of all new car and small trucks sales will be electric vehicles (EV).
  • By 2040 there will be more EVs on the road than internal combustion engine vehicles (ICE).  


Don't brush those projections away. Just ask the automobile manufacturers. They believe it, not with press releases, but with their pocketbooks.  They've committed $100Billion+++ to EV technology in the coming years. They are making those investments and expect a return on their investment. In the process, they are reshaping the automobile as we know it.  Debate all you like on when, why, and if it should happen, it won't change a thing. The switch to EV is inevitable.


We need to get in front of these changes by planning and participating in legislation that will effect our hobby: 


  • Legislation to reduce carbon emissions could effect crude oil access
  • Legislation could effect assess to gasoline and even gas stations
  • Legislation could effect gas prices
  • Legislation addressing concerns of pollution from our vehicles will become more prevalent
  • Legislation could effect access to replacement parts 
  • Legislation could reduce or restrict our ability to drive our vehicles on public roads
