Two-Thirds of Dealers Don’t Have (or Want) EVs

Electric vehicles are still tough to find at most U.S. dealerships, according to a survey by the Sierra Club.

The group said 66% of those surveyed didn’t have any EVs in stock. Of those stores, 44% said they would sell EVs if they could get them, but 45 percent said they wouldn’t no matter what.

Geographically, EV availability was the lowest in the Western U.S., where demand for them is highest. In those states, which account for 45% of EV sales nationwide, just 27% of dealers said they had any for sale. Availability was highest in the Southeast, where 41% had EVs in stock.
