Study says that Obama's target of 1 million electric vehicles is "undoable"
February 3, 2011
The Detroit News reported today that a study by Indiana University says that the US is unlikely to meet President Obama's goal of putting 1 million electric vehicles on the roads by 2015.
Here's a bit from the story:
"The production intentions of automakers are currently insufficient to meet the 2015 goal, and even the current plans for production volume may not be met," the report released Wednesday said.
Roland Hwang of the National Resources Defense Council's Transportation Program counters that 1 million vehicles is achievable and notes some forecasts suggest reaching the goal remains possible.
