Electric Transportation

Electricity is a domestically produced transportation fuel that will transform our nation’s transportation sector. Today, the technology and infrastructure exist to promote transportation applications that move both people and goods using electricity as a fuel. This new generation of electric transportation will help the nation enter an era of clean transportation and reduce its dependence on foreign oil. Diversifying the transportation sector’s fuel mix also will enhance U.S. energy and economic security.


Electric applications are available today across the transportation​ sector. In the passenger car market, more than 800,000 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are now on the road in the United States and sales continue to grow. Plug-in technologies are proliferating across the Non-Road and Fleet segments as well. Learn more about the opportunity for electric transportation in each of the sections below.
