A Blazer SS could be a sporty, affordable crossover for the mainstream. Biofuels interests go against the Biden administration’s EV push. And battery affordability is threatened by surging materials costs. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.

And amid spiking nickel lithium prices, analysts see the surge in raw-materials costs leading to a rise in EV battery prices—with battery affordability gains possibly on hold until 2024. That could have a lasting impact on EV affordability itself.
