Ann Arbor (Informed Comment) – A new University of Michigan study has shown that today, 90% of Americans would see lower transportation costs and lower CO2 emissions if they switched from a car with an Internal Combustion Engine or ICE to an electric vehicle (EV). They were only looking at the cost of running a car, so they did not include the cost of buying an EV, which is anyway plummeting. A Chevy Bolt can be had for as little as $19,500 with the $7500 Biden tax credit. The study is Jesse Vega-Perkins et al 2023 Environ. Res. Lett. 18
