Less than 20% of US adults say they will likely buy an EV as their next car, citing cost and lack of charging stations as the main deterrents. The government is working to address these concerns with tax credits for drivers and grants for companies that provide EV charging, with a plan to build a network of 1.2 million public chargers across the country.
