The oil industry has launched an all-out offensive on electric cars and the electric vehicle (EV) tax credit. The massive PR and lobbying campaign relies on a web of front groups, think tanks, and industry-funded “experts”—many with clear ties to Koch Industries and other oil companies—to spread disinformation about the economic and environmental benefits of electric cars and to undermine support for policies that support EV adoption.
