"Obama clearly still has a goal of 1 million plug-in EVs on the road by 2015," said Roland Hwang, director of the transportation program at the Natural Resources Defense Council.
The president will also insist on the new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, set at 54.5 mpg (4.4L/100km) by the 2025 model year.
However, given the reluctance of many American drivers to embrace alternative technologies, Obama has his work cut out for him if he hopes to change the face of the automotive landscape in the U.S. He has four more years to reach his goal, and you can bet the consequences will be felt north of the border, too.
