NJ CAR recently launched a grassroots campaign, asking New Jersey legislators to supportamendments to Electric Vehicle (EV) legislation that would provide funding for consumerincentives and infrastructure expansion. Already, hundreds of letters and dozens of tweets have been sent to New Jersey legislators.
New Jersey’s franchised dealers are fighting tooth and nail to overcome the two biggest obstacles that keep consumers from buying EVs in greater quantities – affordability and an under-developed charging infrastructure. Both the New Jersey Senate and Assembly will soon consider legislation that begins addressing these hurdles, but the legislation doesn’t go far enough.
If you haven’t already done so, NJ CAR needs every dealer principal and their employees to ask their elected officials to support amendments to EV legislation. It is incredibly easy and takes just a few seconds:
1. Click on the EV Legislation Grassroots Link.2. Fill in your name, address and email on the right-hand side of the page and click “Next.”3. Edit the email and tweet (if you choose).4. Click “Connect with Twitter.”5. Click “Submit” and an email and tweet will be sent to the appropriate legislators.
This legislation will be a significant milestone in developing the EV market in New Jersey.Cash-on-the-hood incentives, forcing manufacturers to price and equip EVs appropriately and investing in an expanded charging infrastructure would all help New Jersey achieve its aggressive Clean Car mandates. If you haven’t already done so, please click on the link above RIGHT NOW and ask your elected officials to support the NJ CAR-backed amendments to pending EV legislation.
