If you’re part of the silent majority of proud gasoline engine enthusiasts buckle up.

The battle over Democrats’ electric vehicle (EV) mandates just got hotter.

And Joe Biden flipped his lid over the devastating insult this major auto executive just hurled his way.

Despite the relentless push from the Biden regime and the rest of the ruling class elite, working class Americans are digging their heels in, and standing firm against their environmental extremist electric vehicle (EV) mandates.

Former automotive executive Bob Lutz, a staunch critic of Democrats’ efforts to force EVs on the working class, sounded the alarm during an interview with Fox News.

“Trying to get it done overnight was a colossal mistake, and it just plain is not going to work,” Lutz said.

During the interview, Lutz laid out the cold, hard truth about EVs: they’re expensive, less reliable than gas-powered vehicles, and, frankly, not what the American people want.

But why the resistance?

According to Lutz, it’s a matter of principle.

“It’s not just that the American public is stubborn, and they happen to like gasoline engines,” Lutz said. “It’s just a question of convenience and infrastructure.”

And who can blame them?

Gas-powered vehicles have been the part of the backbone of the American economy for over a century, and it’s going to take more than government mandates to change that.

Moreover, the EV push isn’t just about technology –it’s become a political battleground.

Lutz highlighted how conservatives view EVs as a symbol of government overreach and left-wing, environmental extremism.

“If you buy an EV, it kind of means that you’re siding with the Biden administration on their environmental and social policies,” he explained.

And for many Americans, that’s a line they’re not willing to cross.

But it’s not just about politics – it’s also about practicality too.

Despite billions in taxpayer-funded incentives, EVs are still prohibitively expensive for the average American.

And with a lack of charging infrastructure, range anxiety remains a significant concern for potential buyers.

As Lutz pointed out to Fox News, many Americans have the resounding attitude of, “Nobody is going to take my gasoline-powered pickup truck away from me.”

And it seems like the auto industry is starting to wake up to reality.

With major players like Ford and General Motors scaling back their EV programs, it’s clear that the EV euphoria has reached its peak.

But all hope is not lost.

Lutz believes in a future in which EVs and internal combustion engines coexist harmoniously, as they should in a supposedly free market.

“EVs will be available… the issue of range anxiety, recharge times, the number of recharging stations, all of that is going to be handled over time,” he pointed out, noting the fact that EV technology is still in its infancy in comparison to the more than a century of development on the internal combustion engine.

So, what’s the solution?

According to Lutz, it’s simple: flexibility.

“Your best friend is the ability to react fast and keep your flexibility so that you can keep your options open and swing with the marketplace,” he advised.

In the end, it’s not about politics – it’s about choice.

Whether you’re a die-hard petrolhead or an environmental extremist, the future of transportation should be driven by consumer demand, not government mandates.

And with common sense prevailing, there’s hope for a future in which Americans truly have the freedom to drive the vehicle they choose.
