Abstract

Analysis of electric vehicles and whether or not EVs are a viable option to replace internal combustion engine vehicles for consumer transportation. Perspectives from both the federal and state levels will be addressed as well as what previous Presidential administrations passed with regards to renewable energy since many of those policies were the stepping stones to policies used today. Lifecycle analysis and a basic outline of EVs will be provided.
