In a word, NO. The rumor is FUD.
What is true is that sales in the US, percentage-wise, are far behind many other countries. But, even in the US, EV sales have never been higher.
An article in The Columbian is one of the many sources of this information. From the article:
Electric vehicle sales are expected to hit a record 9% of all passenger vehicles in the U.S. this year, according to Atlas Public Policy. That will be up from 7.3% of new car sales in 2022.
It will be the first time more than 1 million EVs are sold in the U.S. in one calendar year, probably reaching between 1.3 million and 1.4 million cars, the research firm predicts.
Although the numbers show significant progress for electrification, the nation is lagging behind countries like China, Germany and Norway.
