US president Joe Biden was reported attending an auto show in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday. He took a tour of the latest models of electric vehicles by auto manufacturers and was supposed to announce a brand new infrastructure plan to make EV-driving more accessible to the citizens. On Wednesday, the US president made the announcement of the first round of funding for an electric vehicle charging network across America. Biden financed the construction of these EV charging networks in a total of 35 US states.
Joe Biden, a true admirer of vintage cars and a proud owner of a 1967 C2 Corvette Stingray, is also a big proponent of electric vehicles. Biden signs law incentives in order to encourage the customers into buying EVs and manufacturers into building EVs. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, a once-in-a-generation investment for the transportation network in America, included a handsome amount of $7.5 billion for a nationwide electric vehicle charging network in America.
Biden stated that he is pleased to announce that the US government is approving funding for the first 35 American states including Michigan to build their very own EV charging infrastructure throughout the state. The US president stated this at the auto show in Detroit, Michigan, in front of a succession of electric vehicles.
President Joe Biden addressed all the American citizens and stated that all of them are going to be a part of a network of 500,000 Electric vehicle charging stations across the country. According to his statements, these EV charging stations are going to be installed by the IBEW (The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers labor union).
Biden also noted that his administration has already put a sum of $135 billion towards the development and manufacture of electric vehicles. He said that it used to be extremely difficult for people who wished to purchase electric vehicles, but those days are in the past. He went on to add that the Great American Road Trip is going to be fully electrified. The charging stations are supposed to be easy to find as easy as they are at the present time.
