President Joe Biden wants electric vehicles to account for 50% of new car sales by 2030. But to meet that target he may have to sell the cars to a skeptical demographic: Donald Trump voters.

More than 76% of electric vehicle sales last year were in states Biden carried in the 2020 presidential election, according to data registration from IHS Markit and compiled by Bloomberg.
