Electric vehicles account for 1 percent of global auto sales.
While some people might look at that statistic and conclude that 99 times out of a hundred, an electric vehicle is not the best choice, Gov. Jerry Brown is not one of those people.
In 2012, when there were 25,000 electric vehicles registered in California, Brown signed an executive order mandating a target of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025.
When there were only 350,000 ZEVs on the road by January 2018, Brown signed another executive order mandating a target of 5 million electric cars on the road by 2030.
