The United States Federal government recently revealed its prospects in EV sales. According to EV development experts, the government’s massive integration of electric vehicles is too ambitious. They anticipate that the country’s projected figures will rise before 2030. This outcome will result from the country’s current laxed policies on take-ups backed by the introduction of new government taxes tagged on renewables that will slow down renewable their adoption in the market, analysts claim.

2019 saw the American Energy Department project that EV sales would amount to 19% of the country’s new automotive product purchases. Further speculations show that by 2030 the market will see more adoption of hybrid cars as a segue into full EVs. The industry experienced an uptake to a significant degree following a reduction of semblance at the end of the 2020 period. By the end of the year, EV sales were at an all-time high of 26%. Despite the government’s proposition, the increment is a tall task to increase taxes on ‘clean’ cars.

Further predictions show that the state Department believes that the country has to factor in the effect of additional taxes on sales, formulating estimates that EV sales will increase based on the current regulatory policies. Further reports reveal the industry is subject to state taxes believed to have no substantial effect on their use.

According to Jake Whitehead, a leading regulatory authority on electric car policies at the University of Queensland, the Victorian government administration’s existing subsidies go a long way to improve EV adoption. Jake relates that small revenues are required from EV sales further to affect the market up to 50 percent of its sales.  A further report from Dr. Whitehead, leading author on transport for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that the general ideology behind the tax benefits is the perception it holds in public. People relate a tax subsidy to efficiency, and government backing provided costs accumulate over the vehicle’s lifetime.

The current Chief Executive of the Electric Vehicle Council, Behyad Jafari, states that the council expects an exponential rise in EVs’ adoption in Australia. While the country still lags in its integration of EVs, the government hopes to implement policies that will help place electric vehicles within reasonable reach of the public. Notable brands in Australia include Mitsubishi, Ford, and Holden from GMC, which have not extended their EV products. However, there is still high speculation that favorable policies can help significantly affect EV integration.
