Nearly 4,000 car dealers urge Biden to abandon “unrealistic” electric vehicle agenda amid plummeting sales
By Laura Harris // Dec 05, 2023

Nearly 4,000 car dealers from all over the United States have sent a letter to President Joe Biden, urging him to abandon his "unrealistic" green energy agenda involving the expansion of electric vehicle (EV) use due to the lower-than-expected sales and adoption.

In the letter, car dealership heads and executives advised Biden to drop EV mandates and green energy requirements for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) that demand two out of every three vehicles sold in the U.S. by 2032 must be EVs. Car dealers argue that consumer demand for EVs does not align with the influx of BEVs arriving at dealerships, resulting in unsold vehicles piling up despite deep price cuts, manufacturer incentives and government subsidies.

"With each passing day, it becomes more apparent that this attempted electric vehicle mandate is unrealistic based on current and forecasted customer demand. Already, electric vehicles are stacking up on our lots, which is our best indicator of customer demand in the marketplace," car dealers wrote.

Car dealers argue that current technology is inadequate to meet the needs of the majority of consumers. They are pleading with the administration to "tap the brakes on the unrealistic government electric vehicle mandate" and to instead focus on advancing battery technology, enhancing EV affordability, developing domestic mineral sources for batteries and establishing reliable charging infrastructure. (Related: Shifting to green energy is currently impossible due to global shortage of batteries and minerals needed for energy storage.)

This, in turn, would allow the American consumer time to become comfortable with the technology and make informed choices regarding their vehicle preferences.

Car dealers face sluggish EV sales despite discounts and incentives

Auto industry experts support car dealers, as they know that dealerships are struggling to sell their EVs. Online car inventory directory Edmunds revealed that, in September 2022, EVs only spent on average 21 days on dealership lots before being sold. This figure has since surged to 65 days. This reluctance and loss of interest in EVs is supported by the current situation of EV sales across the United States.

For instance, Mickey Anderson, who owns 20 dealerships in Nebraska, Missouri, and Colorado, initially received nearly 200 orders for the Ford F-150 Lightning EV when it was announced. However, the enthusiasm waned over time, which resulted in only 25 Lightning sales out of 1,000 Ford F-series trucks sold in 2022.

Anderson currently has 12 Lightnings in stock, equivalent to about a six-month supply, and is offering significant discounts, including up to $14,000 in Ford incentives, dealer discounts, and a $7,500 federal tax credit to attract buyers.

Although his stocks sound as promising as they may sound, Andreson could not deny the fact that he still needs to consider the struggles that American consumers face if dealerships in the future only offer EVs.

Meanwhile, Mary Rice, the owner of a Toyota dealership in Greensboro, North Carolina, is frustrated that newly redesigned Prius hybrids are selling well in Toyota's Southeast region, but the fully electric BZ4X SUVs are not moving, sitting idle and collecting dust.

She said that if people were eager to buy EVs, it would be great, but she anticipates being left with unsold EVs at the end of the year despite offering discounts, as there seems to be little interest.
