Tesla for Everyone
I was somewhat surprised to read that General Motors Co. was the only automaker publicly to say that it planned to convince lawmakers to keep the electric car credit in tax reform. I suppose electric cars are still a small percentage of the car market, but the cause created an unlikely alliance between environmental groups and utilities—and so the credit stays in the Senate tax reform bill. We’ll see what happens next, and whether there will be an electric car future. Driverless next?
In the meantime, I think a Tesla sounds like a perfect Christmas gift, if you haven’t done your shopping yet. The tax credits has always started to phase-out after each manufacturer sells 200,000 qualifying electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles, so better this holiday season than next.
