USA: Arizona Considers Charging Electric Cars Tax At 1.43¢ Per Mile

For many years, Arizona was considered an electric-car friendly state, thanks to California-style tailpipe emissions and mandates which required automakers to sell a certain percentage of zero-emissions cars in order to sell in the state.

But less than a month after the Arizona Governor’s Regulatory Review Council voted to repeal the state’s Clean Cars law and adopt the less-stringent emissions standards set out in Federal law, the state is now considering charging a pay-per-mile tax on electric car use.

Arizona House Bill 2257 — introduced by Rep. Steve Farley (D-AZ) — is modeled on proposed Oregonian legislation and would charge electric car owners up to 1.43 cents per mile travelled.

Like the $100 per year tax being proposed in Washington state and the electric car electricity tax being discussed in Kansas, the proposed Arizona tax would be the electric car equivalent of the tax currently levied on gasoline purchases statewide.
