We advocate for equitable legislation, programs, and changes that increase accessibility and utilization of electric vehicles (EVs) in Michigan.
The State of the Motor City will lead the shift from gasoline to EVs to reduce the effects of climate change and ensure an equitable future for all.
What’s at stake?
The standard of global transportation is changing.
Internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles have been a staple of our world for over a century, but the consequences of this industrial age technology are coming into sharp relief in the 21st century. Health concerns, pollution, and global climate change are among the currently tangible side effects of the ICE automobile, and the world is shifting to compensate. With this shift, the home of the Motor City finds itself in on the edge of the spotlight. Will Michigan have the vision to lead the way, leaning on its existing infrastructure, technical expertise, supply chains, and reputation? Or will we cling to the past, and let the automotive capital of the United States lose its century long head start?
