Duke Experts Discuss Hurdles, Benefits Of Electric Vehicles

The electric vehicle movement had a moment this week when President Joe Biden took a new, electric Ford F-150 for a highly publicized test drive in touting his plan to invest $174 billion in incentives for that technology.

On Wednesday, two Duke scholars discussed the benefits and challenges of electric vehicles during a virtual briefing with journalists.
