One of the biggest challenges in the fight against global warming, particularly in the United States, is the use of fossil fuels for transportation. The good news is that over the past few years, we've made considerable strides with electric vehicles, or EVs, in order to decrease this effect. The number of EVs on US roadways has surpassed 3 million, and it is growing quickly, according to the White House.
