Description (excerpt):

For most Americans, the mention of EVs conjures images of protected forests, composting, recycling, maybe a few affluent families who can afford to upgrade to a Tesla.
That’s a huge problem. These associations have allowed the far right to seize on EVs as a symbol for out-of-touch liberals trying to force a political agenda on working class families. They’ve become a cultural issue. And by continuing to present the benefits of EVs as exclusively environmental, the left is feeding that argument.
