USA: We should support OEM and Aftermarket Plug-in vehicles with the same tax incentives

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.

Supporting Equal Incentives for Conversions will: stimulate jobs to a different workforce segment than new cars, more quickly expand the number of fuel saving vehicles on the road, develop plug-in / EV industry expertise more broadly and quickly across the country and reach 1M plug-ins by 2015.
