Electric vehicles (EVs) are the future of the automobile industry and a key innovation in transportation technology and manufacturing in the 21st Century. Michigan pioneered the auto industry and now stands at the forefront of its future. Yet, the growth of this industry depends in large part on whether the market for electric vehicles continues to strengthen. Michigan therefore has a critical role to play in ensuring that electric car adoption and sales succeed here in the auto state.
