"In March 2018, a group of America's largest electric utilities sided with U.S. automakers and asked Congress to preserve the tax credit in order to support the continued growth of sales of electric vehicles."Even the left is embarrassed by the abuses seen where rich folks buying Teslas and other high end EVs are being subsidized by mortgaging the futures of our grandchildren
Not exactly lefties.
Don't know of any abuses of the EV tax credit. It's straightforward. How would someone abuse it?
US car makers are under pressure to go all EV since the two largest car markets, China and EU are requiring EV's by 2035. At the same time since US is a bit backward on the issue, US car mfgs have to cater to an heavily ICE market in US, their base.
That the EV subsidy is now mostly applied to car mfgs from EU and Asia, it creates a double whammy for US car mfgs as they transition to EVs to be competitive in world markets.
