8 Reasons New Jersey Needs More Electric Cars

Share on Facebook! New Jersey‘s numbers are improving, but the state may need another 10 years to reach federal health standard for ozone levels near the ground, according to the New Jersey Energy Coalition.

Does this sound like a job for electric car makers?

To reduce pollution from its vehicles, New Jersey is taking on California’s zero-emission program, according to NJ Spotlight. Mark Duvall of the Electric Power Research Institute says 15 percent of the cars sold in New Jersey by 2025 will have to operate with no tailpipe emissions.

Cost will be another advantage. Duvall predicted that electric cars should be running with two times the energy at around half of the current cost by 2020.

The New Jersey Sales and Use Tax Act allows zero-emissions vehicles sold in New Jersey, including rentals and leases, to be exempt from state sales and use tax. The New Jersey Department of the Treasury offers a list of zero emission vehicles and their model years that qualify.
