Built By Michigan

Electric Vehicles

Built By Michigan brings together small business, large business, workers, families, electric vehicle owners and car aficionados, environmental and faith-based organizations, and more to advance the manufacturing and sales of the electric vehicle in Michigan to strengthen our economy and put our workers back to work.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are the future of the automobile industry and a key innovation in transportation technology and manufacturing in the 21st Century. The growth of this industry depends largely on a strong market for electric vehicles.  Michigan pioneered the auto industry and now stands at the forefront of its future, so it only follows that the auto state has a critical role to play in ensuring the success of electric car adoption and sales.

Built by Michigan supports the following actions to help build the market for EV's in the state:

  • Incentives for the purchase of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles and associated charging equipment  
  • Planning by local municipalities to support EV charging stations in the community and at work
  • Purchase of electric vehicles for public and private vehicle fleets
  • Integration of EV charging infrastructure into utility planning and customer demand-response incentive programs
