USA: Utah Electric Car Tax Incentive Passes the House

House ChamberElectric cars may become more attainable for Utahns after this legislative session. On Tuesday, the House passed HB 74 on a 59-13 vote.

The bill, which gives a larger tax incentive for Utahns to purchase more fuel efficient vehicles, was sponsored by Representative Lowry Snow (Republican – St. George), and extends the current $2,500 tax write off for CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) vehicles to hybrid and electric vehicles. Currently, the tax incentives for hybrid and electric vehicles were $650.

We face, in Utah, sometimes a crisis level inversion. Statistics tell us that 50 percent of what we see outside, during the inversion… is attributable to vehicle use – Representative Lory Snow
Snow’s bill also extends this classification to “plug-in” vehicles like the Chevrolet Leaf, a plug-in hybrid.

The bill has a sunset provision of one year to ensure that the Legislature remain agile in adaption of newer, more fuel efficient technology. Snow called the bill a direct response to car pollution and current car technology. “We face, in Utah, sometimes a crisis level inversion. Statistics tell us that 50 percent of what we see outside, during the inversion… is attributable to vehicle use,” said Snow.
