Nature and Context

Over 220 million Americans drive, but as of 2018 only 1 million of those drivers use electric cars. Making electric and hybrid cars more accessible could help society make this number grow to 18 million by 2030. This massive increase in electric and hybrid driving could help America reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable driving in communities.
