Michigan Is All-In On Electric Vehicles Despite Struggling Market

via FOX 2 Detroit

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has issued a directive to transition the state’s fleet of vehicles to 100 percent electric by 2040, aiming to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions.

The plan involves converting all state-owned vehicles to zero-emission vehicles by 2033 for light-duty vehicles and 2040 for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

This move is intended to reduce emissions, increase demand for Michigan automakers’ zero-emission vehicle production, and lower overall fleet costs. (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

However, the transition’s financial implications for taxpayers remain unclear.

Whitmer’s directive aligns with her administration’s focus on green energy, yet it comes amid controversy regarding investments involving Chinese corporations linked to the Chinese Communist Party, raising concerns about taxpayer subsidies and local opposition to related projects.
