100% electric road transportation for the world
An audacious strategy
Cars, trucks, and buses are fundamental to modern life, but the combustion engine is an outdated technology choking our air and atmosphere with pollution.
We advance smart government policies to drive electric vehicle (EV) supply and demand, directly impacting regional change and scaling strategies for rapid adoption. We engage business leaders to ensure adequate investment and drive ambitious commitments in EV procurement. And by supporting diverse people-powered coalitions, we mobilize communities to demand better health, jobs, and environmental justice.Learn more about our strategy

Abating climate change
Electrifying all road transportation, powered by clean energy, provides one of the most powerful and globally scalable ways to achieve a safer climate. With Drive Electric, we can eliminate over 165 billion tons of carbon pollution, avoiding an estimated $6+ trillion in climate damages to cities, villages, and our planet’s ecosystems.
Ensuring health and justice
Transforming road transportation will impact every breath we take. Drive Electric will end the polluting tailpipe, saving hundreds of thousands of lives and preventing millions of cases of respiratory disease per year. Transportation pollution is not evenly distributed, and a zero-emission system will markedly benefit communities living in and near polluted cities, freight corridors and hubs, and busy ports.
Growing a green economy
Shifting to 100% electric road transportation will catalyze trillions of dollars in new investments. Drive Electric revs ambition, creating an estimated 7-19 million jobs across vehicle manufacturing, charging infrastructure, and local services. By addressing interconnected barriers, our roadmap tackles cost and convenience challenges to create savings for people and businesses.
