Electric vehicles for everyone? Climate justice programs help people of color, low-income Americans get moving – USA TODAY

Shana Watson sensed an immediate difference when an electric vehicle ride-share program was launched last fall at the community center where she works in north St. Louis.
“Oh, my goodness. They are so quiet. They are smoooooth. Like, you don’t even know when they’re started up because you don’t hear the ‘un, un, un,'” of a gasoline-powered engine turning over, said Watson, who serves as senior program director at the Northside Youth and Senior Service Center. “You’re not getting the fumes and all of that in the air. It’s clean.”
