Harris states the hope to “make electric vehicles accessible for everyone” and to “make it easy just like filling up your car with gas”. The new charging station plan creates a joint electric vehicles office between the transportation and federal energy departments. As well as this, it ensures consultations between manufacturers, local governments, civil rights groups, tribes, among other groups. Getting more electric vehicles on the road to replace polluting gasoline cars will help the environment.
