Seeking to address market failures that prevent the U.S. economy from serving the nation’s economic and national security needs, the President’s modern American industrial strategy includes building a clean energy economy.
According to The White House, the U.S. consumer market for EVs is rapidly growing. In the third quarter of 2023, EV and hybrid sales amounted to 18 percent of U.S. light duty vehicle sales; over the year, Americans bought one million fully electric vehicles, a new record. President Biden is supporting this growing demand by setting ambitious goals for accelerating the EV transition through his Investing in America agenda. Through the Inflation Reduction Act, he has worked with Congress to lower the price of new and used EVs by thousands of dollars and to incentivize American EV and battery manufacturing, attracting more than $152 billion of investment into the sector since taking office.
