45% of US car dealers won’t sell you an EV – here’s what’s going on
By: Michelle Lewis
Sixty-six percent of US car dealers don’t have any EVs to sell, and 45% said they wouldn’t sell them no matter what, according to a new report from Sierra Club about the EV shopping experience in the US.
Conversely, the authors report that out of the 66% of dealerships that don’t have any EVs, 44% want to sell them when they can get them. Those who want to sell EVs say that stock bottlenecks are caused by supply chain problems, inventory challenges, and EV automaker allocation to dealerships.
