The market is not ready for the mass adoption of electric cars

The demand for electric cars has undoubtedly increased in recent years, while the big manufacturers on the international car scene have invested more and more financial resources, and not only in this direction. However, we must all admit that there is still a long way to go! And this is not only said by us, but also by important people in the industry. One of those sounding the alarm is Jack Hollis, executive vice president of sales at Toyota Motor North America.

Despite the efforts made in recent years by both car manufacturers and authorities in many parts of the world, Jack Hollis believes that at the moment there is not enough demand for the mass adoption of zero-emission cars, especially in terms of local market in the United States of America.

According to the Toyota executive, electric cars are still far too expensive for most drivers, with too few who can financially afford a zero-emission car. In addition, Jack Hollis also says that the charging infrastructure is not yet ready for the mass adoption of these cars.

Bold goals in the US for electric cars

The current administration in the White House, led by Joe Biden, aims for zero-emission cars to account for half of new car sales by 2030. But 2030 is only seven years away, prompting Jack Hollis to warn that such a goal is far too optimistic.

In addition, Jack Hollis sounds the alarm, claiming that this offensive by the authorities in relation to electric cars can be dangerous in time. “When you start pushing consumers too hard on things they’re not ready for, there may be other consequences,” says Toyota’s executive vice president of sales.
