Above is false and a red herring,
excluding California the 20 year old road funding crisis has nothing to do with EVs.
There is less than 1% of EVs on roads in all areas outside California and pure BEV sales are actually falling in many areas including Wisconsin.
Because many standard metrics lump anything with a plug together (also counting just sales not differentiating new Vrs used sales) you can’t draw meaningful conclusions beyond the fact there are only 15,000 EVs in Illinois which is a very very small number
To put things into perspective
New York which is #2 in EV sales sold 1/10 the number sold in California
Outside California EVs are nearly irrelevant and selling in unstable numbers
