USA: Electric Vehicle Converters Petitioning White House for Tax Incentives

Organizations and electric vehicle converters are petitioning the White House for tax incentives to financially aid the conversion of fossil-fueled propulsion systems to electric systems. It is called the “Equal Incentives for Conversion” petition.

Washington Capital.

According to the petition on the White House website:

“While the Federal government should continue providing Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicles (IRC 30D) tax incentives for new plug-in vehicles, they should extend the same incentives to EV / plug-in conversions. Conversions target 250M existing vehicles on the roads, can save over 40% of fuel use or no fuel at all, have a smaller carbon footprint than new car since they reuse most of the original vehicle, and cost less to buy as an incremental expense making plug-in more affordable.”

Jon Lesage from Autoblog Green asked: “Why is it that you can get a $7,500 federal tax credit on your electric vehicle manufactured by a major automaker, but not on your converted EV or plug-in hybrid?”
