Joe Biden is determined to outlaw gas-powered vehicles.

He is using government mandates to force Americans to accept electric vehicles (EVs).

But this Purdue University professor just exposed one electric vehicle problem that has Joe Biden throwing a fit.

Under the guise of stopping climate change, President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats are going all-in on outlawing gas-powered vehicles and forcing working-class Americans to buy more expensive, less convenient, and in many cases, impractical electric vehicles (EVs).

Biden’s goal is for two-thirds of all new vehicles produced in America to be electric by 2032.

In an effort to boost sales, Biden previously doled out a $7,500 tax credit for purchasing an EV.

He also demanded 500,000 new charging ports for EVs be built all across the United States.

But despite Biden and his fellow Democrats’ best efforts, Americans continue to reject electric vehicles and instead prefer gas-powered vehicles.

Of course, Americans reject Biden’s push to transition the country over to EVs for a number of reasons.

For example, electric vehicles remain more costly than their gas-powered counterparts, as Kelly Blue Book reports that the average price of a four-door, gas-powered sedan is roughly $35,000 versus $55,000 for an equivalent EV.

On top of being more expensive, there are still other issues consumers have to deal with when it comes to EVs, including the limited number of charging stations available nationwide, the amount of time it takes to fully recharge an EV battery, and the limiting effect cold weather can have on the vehicle’s batteries.

And now a top engineering professor at Purdue University is calling out another problem with EVs.

Electric vehicles weigh about 30% more than gas-powered automobiles.

And as engineering professor Dan Williams pointed out, this additional weight means tires on EVs wear out quicker than their gas-powered counterparts.

“When we start off with electrically powered vehicles already having more mass, it’s just all the more sensitive to increased acceleration,” Williams said.

And the wear could be worse depending on where you live.

“In the city, you know, we’ve got stop signs that we have to both accelerate away from and also brake into,” Williams said. “And we have a lot more sort of curves in the road, we’re making right-hand turns, left-hand turns, roads have curves,” he continued, before adding that “whenever we generate centrifugal force in those turns, the tires have to react to that also.”

“It’s just kind of inherent in the city and even, I would say, secondary road kind of duty cycles that we would see more tire wear than on a highway,” he added.

Joe Biden is hell-bent on transitioning America over to electric vehicles.

But his efforts continue to fail as more issues with EVs pop up on a near-weekly basis.
