The biggest hurdle to the mass adoption of electric vehicles seems to be the sticker shock of higher prices. But what is the true cost of an EV versus an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle? Nick Nigro, founder of Atlas Public Policy and Tom Taylor, policy analyst at Atlas Public Policy, have a new report out that answers this exact question. In this conversation, we explore the actual costs of maintenance and charging of EVs vs ICE maintenance and fuel, what wider EV adoption would mean for carbon emissions and cleaner air, the equity issues that prevent wider adoptions of EVs now, and what their analysis could predict for the next few years.
