ZETA Statement on the Inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris

January 21, 2021

Washington, DC – In response to the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) — a coalition of over 40 businesses advocating for federal policies to achieve 100% electric vehicle sales by 2030 — Executive Director Joe Britton issued the following statement:

“ZETA congratulates President Biden and Vice President Harris on their inauguration. Our membership is eager to work with the Biden-Harris Administration to promote policies that enable 100 percent electric vehicle (EV) sales by 2030, a necessary step to achieve the new Administration’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. We are thrilled that the Biden Administration has made transportation electrification a core policy priority and are eager to work with them and the 117th Congress to achieve our shared goals.”

The Zero Emission Transportation Association recently released their Roadmap to 2030 Policy Platform that provides federal policymakers with a comprehensive guide to accelerate the adoption of EVs across six policy pillars.

“By making a significant federal commitment to accelerating transportation electrification, we can create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, secure American global EV manufacturing leadership, dramatically improve public health and significantly reduce carbon pollution. We urge policymakers to utilize ZETA’s Roadmap for Transportation Electrification as a foundation for taking on this important work.”

“The first 100 days of the Biden-Harris Administration will be critical for transportation electrification, and we urge swift action to enact an uncapped point-of-sale consumer EV incentive, make robust investments in public charging infrastructure, and send strong market signals with new vehicle emission standards, among other priorities.”
