A new survey show roughly one-in-five Americans are "very unlikely" to make their next car purchase an electric vehicle, as the Biden administration moves toward new emission standards that would result in about two-thirds of new vehicles sold in the U.S. by 2032 be electric powered. 

The J.D. Power survey showed that from January to March, the percentage of Americans "very unlikely" to choose an EV as their next car has grown from 17.8% to 21%, according to Business Insider.

 The new carbon-emission standards were put forth in a rule proposal last month by the Environmental Protection Agency.

High sticker costs and lack of charging stations played a key role in consumers’ decision to not go green, the survey found.
