DUH: CBS News Reveals America Is Not Ready for EV Transition

Breaking News

Despite massive government pressure to force Americans to use electric vehicles (EVs), CBS News recently uncovered that even the most leftist areas are way behind in providing the necessary infrastructure. 

The legacy media network covered massive challenges to the rushed EV transition pushed by the Biden administration during the Feb. 26 edition of CBS Mornings. CBS Mornings co-host Tony Dokoupil said that “charging where and when you want is not as easy as fueling up” before a segment that featured the following chyron: “Closing the EV charging gap, lack of charging stations poses a problem to the growing EV market.” Their reporting included figures and in-person visits by CBS News correspondent David Schechter to highlight that not only are there limited charging stations, but also many of them are routinely out of service.

“J.D. Power found 35% of EV drivers in Miami had visited a charger where they were unable to actually charge, in Denver and Dallas, that number was 29%. Other research found 28% of the chargers in the San Francisco Bay Area did not function properly,” Schechter said, citing two studies showing the prevalence of out-of-service charging stations.

“To keep up with growing EV sales, experts estimate, in addition to all the private chargers at homes and offices, the U.S. will need 1.2 million publicly accessible chargers by 2030,” he added. “Today there are about 160,000 which means we’ll have to build the equivalent of what we have right now every year for the next six years.”

The segment also included footage of Schechter searching for available and functioning chargers with mixed results. CBS Mornings co-host Nate Burleson mentioned that he charged his own EV at home, before conceding that this was not generally affordable. The hosts went on to discuss the inconvenience of charging an EV over filling up a gasoline car and the effect of cold weather on chargers. 

This segment demonstrates how unprepared the country is, even in leftist cities like San Francisco. This further reveals the absurdity of the Biden administration’s actions on energy as well as California’s emission standards, which sixteen other states have signed on to. California mandates that “all new passenger cars, trucks and SUVs sold in California will be zero emissions” by 2035. At the same time, the Biden administration has pushed a mandate that EVs make up two-thirds of vehicles sold at car dealerships by 2032.

CBS News employees aren’t the only people who have noticed that this transition isn’t on schedule. Car companies such as Audi and Mercedes-Benz have scaled back their electric vehicle plans, while Toyota Chairman Akio Toyoda has insisted that EVs will never completely take over the market. Even The Washington Post has noticed that Americans aren’t buying enough EVs to satisfy dealers, despite incentives. The Post article on EVs even noted that “EV ads from Detroit automakers were noticeably absent from the Super Bowl for the first time in several years.”
