One of my largest pandemic purchases was a 2016 VW e-Golf and it is a great car but the relatively limited transportation in the great state of Wisconsin means that longer trips aren’t really doable. Since I am neither a traveling salesman nor a political candidate, that doesn’t tend to be an issue but if I was still commuting daily to Kohler, it might be.
The other day, I was reading an article that said that the governors of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin had created something called the Regional Electric Vehicle Midwest Coalition. The plan promises to make it easier to find charging stations, which could boost adoption of electric vehicles if it eases drivers’ concerns about the range of their batteries. You can read the full Memorandum of Understanding for more details.
I do hope that this spurs modernization of the regional transportation infrastructure but I’m not holding my breath.
