(Community Matters 79) Pace for EV Sales Might be Slower than Planned, but they’re Here to Stay, Dealer Says

The owner of Battle Creek’s Ford and Lincoln dealership tells Community Matters EV sales might not be what was initially predicted, but the market is there.

Vince Pavone, whose Lakeview Ford store sponsors Community Matters, also discusses his view on how this might affect the planned EV battery output at the Marshall, Michigan BlueOval plant Ford is currently building.

He also discusses the Build America, Buy America Act and its effect on the EV market, Chinese technology licensed by Ford, and more.
