Yeah, the Republican introduced amendment to limit tax credits to EVs under $40,000 was nothing more than a message, it was non-binding. Its something Republicans could use in their campaigns, probably claiming they introduced legislation to stop wasteful spending and the Democrats ignored it...
I was reading that TeslaBjorn in Norway had a 11% reduction over 165,000 miles on his 2013 Model S (lots of supercharger use, and generally cooler temperatures in Norway), and someone commented on that article that they had a 9% reduction over 175,000 miles on their 2015 Model S.
From what I was reading from some early 1910's electric vehicle magazines put out by the Electric Vehicle Association of America, was that charging station owners were doing quite well making money.
You can read them here (many of the archives are multiple magazines, over 300 pages total), from...
I like that Atlas Blue, but I'd have to compare it against Anti-matter blue to see which one I like the most.
On the 360 Colorizer, Antimatter Blue looks like the picture shown in the first...
If they are not union, then the vehicle is not eligible for that $4500...
Do you really think you'll need to take a 30-45 minute nap while charging on a long trip? Something that won't happen but a few times a year.
If it US built - non union with 50% us built battery, it looks like the credit is $8000.
A union, US built EV is that $8000 PLUS $4500 for $12,500
The nice part of this proposed credit is that it can be used at the point of sale.
Information cross posted from:
If the tax credit is stackable, like i think it might be, that means $12,500.
If my stocks grow like I want them to, plus if I can save $12,000 in the next two years and 4 months and the combined $12,500 tax credit, I could afford the F-150 Lightning with the...
This is a good indication on how well EV batteries last:
7 years, 165,000 miles and only 11% reduction in battery capacity (A 2013 Model S in Norway)
Plus, some comments to the article, one guy states 174,000 miles...
The short answer is no. You don't need to spend an extra $7000 for the long range battery for the twice a year long trips you make. If you use the electric vehicle options in Google Maps, or use "A better route planner" website or the app, you can easily plan the trip around chargers. There's...
