Electric vehicles (EVs) of all sizes – from bikes to buses – are not without problems.  Experts continue to warn they are not reliable.  In fact, it was reported in November that EV sales were way down in the U.S. and that almost 4000 car dealers had asked the Biden administration to slow their rollout.  More recently, rental car company Hertz announced it would be selling 20,000 of its EVs.  Additionally, some school districts are deciding not to take advantage of grants for "virtually free" electric buses including one in Georgia.
