The University of California, Berkeley, released a study examining the EV
market. It includes the economic and environmental benefits of mass-market
adoption. The study shows rapid adoption of EVs will decrease America’s
dependence on foreign oil, increase employment, and reduce transportation
emissions.

The study also predicts:
o    A net gain of up to 350,000 new jobs by 2030 related to EVs
o    Reduced emissions by as much as 62% from 2005 levels
o    Healthcare savings up to $205 billion from emissions reductions
o    Reduced oil imports up to 3.7 million barrels per day (equivalent to
Persian Gulf and Venezuela import rates)

The complete study is available:
