Electric car federal tax credit may rise to $10,000 but won’t apply to Tesla |

The White House is considering giving the electric vehicle market a significant boost by raising the maximum tax break for zero emissions vehicles, reportsDetroit News.

A rise from the $7,500 federal tax credit currently available to a headline sum of $10,000 has been proposed in an analysis by the US Treasury. Were the new maximum tax break to be rubber-stamped, however, it would not apply to vehicles worth more than $45,000.

It means that buyers of cars currently offered by Tesla Motors – namely the Model S – and the new Cadillac ELR (which probably needs it most) would not be eligible for a tax break. The highly regarded Nissan LEAF, however, would be available for just $18,970, even before state incentives.
