Myth busting electric vehicles.

The truth is that electric vehicles—or EVs—are engines of job creation, cost-effective for the consumer, good for the environment and for public health.

The Inflation Reduction Act

The Inflation Reduction Act will transform the U.S. energy sector through substantial investments that will lead us to roughly 40% emissions reductions by 2030. The historic passage of this legislation represents the largest investment in clean energy and climate action in U.S. history.

We are united for an electric future.

ZETA brings together industry, advocates, and nongovernmental organizations whose values and strategic interests are fulfilled by meeting the 2030 goal of every vehicle sold being an EV. This diverse group of EV supporters will coordinate on public education, stakeholder convening, and federal advocacy to promote EV adoption.

Why Electric Vehicles?

Job Creation

Enacting ambitious – but realistic – policies to accelerate transportation electrification will create hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs. Congress must seize this opportunity or risk ceding this economic growth to others.

A Cleaner Environment​

The transportation sector emits more carbon pollution than any other sector of the U.S. economy. Electric vehicles produce no tailpipe emissions and are 67% less carbon intensive than gasoline-powered cars over their lifetime.

Real Savings​

By going electric, vehicles owners can save over $700 a year in fuel and an additional $330 in annual maintenance costs. Federal, state and local incentives can drive greater consumer benefits.

Introducing the ZETA Policy Platform.

ZETA’s Policy Platform is designed to support EV adoption, build a robust domestic supply chain, and create American jobs.

Policy Pillars

EV Market Development

Promote federal policies that expand consumer access to electric vehicles and accelerate fleet electrification across all vehicle classes.

EV Charging Infrastructure Deployment

Educate stakeholders about federal policies that rapidly expand the national electric vehicle charging infrastructure network.

Performance and Emissions Standards

Advance economy-wide performance and emissions standards that reduce transportation emissions and encourage adoption of zero-emission vehicles.

American EV and Battery Manufacturing

Advocate for increased opportunities to advance the EV battery supply chain. 

Domestic Critical Mineral Development

Strengthen America’s EV supply chain and ensure a secure supply of strategic critical minerals.

State Policy

Provide thought leadership and education regarding state policies that reduce barriers to the adoption of electric vehicles and increase advanced manufacturing across the EV supply chain.

Environmental Justice

Expand equitable access to EVs and jobs in the zero-emission transportation industry to all.
EV Benefits

Cleaner Air

The transportation sector emits the most carbon pollution in the U.S. EVs produce no tailpipe emissions and are 67% less carbon intensive than gasoline-powered cars over their lifetime. A full transition to EVs would eliminate tailpipe pollutants like NOx, fine particulate matter, and carbon dioxide from our vehicle transportation system.

Economic Growth

Electric vehicles support over 300,000 American jobs, with new EV manufacturing poised to create hundreds of thousands of new jobs in the years to come.  The rest of the world is moving aggressively to seize this generational opportunity. The U.S. must lead this race to create a new manufacturing and jobs sector worth billions.

Real Savings

By going electric, EV owners can save over $700 a year in fuel and an additional $330 in annual maintenance costs. Meanwhile, the retail price of EVs continues to decline as manufacturing scales up. Federal, state and local incentives have the ability to drive greater consumer benefits and EV adoption.

Ease of Ownership

In addition to no longer needing to pay for gas, EVs only include a handful of moving parts versus the hundreds in a traditional gasoline vehicle and thus require far less service and maintenance.  With no oil, coolant, transmission fluid or belts to change, it’s no wonder that 96% of EV owners say they’ll never go back to a gas-powered car.

Healthier Communities

Low-income and frontline communities already faced a disproportionate health burden from mobile source emissions prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We now know that exposure to air pollution has worsened COVID impacts in these communities. Full electrification will reduce respiratory illness and save lives.

The Driving Experience

Thanks to the instant torque of an electric motor, EVs also have incredible performance. They can also be safer to drive because of a low center of gravity, and with no traditional engine they have a front crumple zone that protects passengers in head-on collisions.

About ZETA

National policies to support 100% electric vehicle sales.

The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) is a federal coalition focused on advocating for 100% EV sales. Enacting policies that drive EV adoption will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, secure American global EV manufacturing dominance, drastically improve public health, and significantly reduce carbon pollution.
