According to reports, President Biden plans to relax his ambitious electric vehicle mandates in response to criticism from automakers and unions.

His original 2023 regulations would have required nearly 70% of new car sales to be electric by 2032.

Now, to appease these groups, Biden will extend automakers’ deadlines to sharply increase EV sales, not requiring major growth until after 2030.

This change comes after the UAW president admitted most union members will vote Republican in 2024 due to economic hardship under Biden.

“Look, let me be clear about this. A great majority of our members will not vote for President Biden. Yes, some will. But that’s the reality of this,” president Shawn Fain said.

“The majority of our members are going to vote with their paychecks,” he said.

Trump has warned Biden’s rules could eliminate millions of auto jobs.

A recent poll also found over 60% of voters in key swing states oppose Biden’s EV mandates for industries and consumers.

Biden appears to be slowing the mandates ahead of the next election.
