According to Kelly Blue Book, an automotive research firm, about 1.2 million vehicles representing 7.6% of total new vehicle sales are all-electric. The number of electric vehicles has increased drastically like never before. They have almost doubled. By the end of 2023, a total of 2.5 million electric vehicles will be on the road in the United States.

According to many people interested in energy, America is finally focusing on greater efficiency. Despite all the doomsday predictions from some: “With just this one percent, you could run about 10 million electric vehicles in the U.S. – energy efficiency makes sense in all areas, not just when switching to electric drive.
