Electric-Car Incentives Vary Globally–A Lot–But Generally Work

If you’ve bought an electric vehicle recently, chances are you may have enjoyed some of the myriad incentives currently offered on plug-in cars.

Income-tax credits, purchase rebates, sales-tax exemptions, and various non-monetary incentives have been used worldwide to spur plug-in car sales growth.

Now, data from the International Council on Clean Transportation show they’re working pretty well. Mostly.

An ICCT paper shows that incentives vary wildly from country to country, and that some are working better than others.

At around 200,000 vehicles, global plug-in car sales in 2013 were near double those of 2012–which were themselves twice as high as 2011.
