Sustainable transportation hinges on EV adoption, but it also requires that there is fewer cars, more transit, safer streets and sound planning. Ultimately, the wide array of benefits means there are many potential allies for EV advocates to work with in turning heads and motivating elected officials.

Within only a few years, long-standing barriers for EV adoption have eroded to the point where replacing personal combustion vehicles with their electric counterparts no longer appears a pipe dream. For many reasons, this tectonic shift warrants celebration.
