AEA Statement on EPA’s Gas-Powered Vehicle Ban

WASHINGTON DC (03/20/2024) – Today, the Biden administration finalized a gas-powered vehicle ban that aims to remake the transportation sector and fundamentally upend the American way of life. The regulation mandates electric vehicle adoption by requiring 67 percent of new light-duty and 46 percent of new medium-duty vehicle sales to be EVs by 2032. It will also increase America’s reliance on China for the critical minerals – such as lithium, cobalt, and manganese – required in battery manufacturing.

AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“This regulation is another example of President Biden’s assault on the middle class. The American people should be free to choose the types of cars and trucks that make the most sense for them. This administration wants to take away that choice by forcing Americans into specific vehicles preferred by government agents at the EPA. The Biden regulations will make cars more expensive and ultimately make fewer cars available for Americans. By now, we have gotten used to incredibly damaging and stupid rules from the Biden administration, but this one is in a class by itself.”
