Not relevant IMO ( since they can’t afford a new car anyway ) — they’re not outlawing used ICEs and there’s electric vehicles out there that price out under the average transaction price of a new vehicle. Not to mention monthly cash flow expense on them will be lower vs ICE comparison for vast majority new vs new.The average American cannot afford an electric vehicle.
Auto manufacturers clearly don’t care about the average American based on what they’re focused on producing lately.
I would say though that there are probably a lot of people that want to drive one that can’t afford one and are stuck with an used ICE if that’s what you were saying. I just don’t think those people were buying new in the first place — and if they were, they probably can indeed now or will soon be able to get one for the same cost new.
