Electric Car Rebates Would Increase To $10,000 Under Obama Budget

Electric Car Rebates Would Increase To $10,000 Under Obama Budget

“These people are dumb how could an average person making under 60,000 a year buy a car that costs 35000. These rebates would help out alot more people and for those who think obama is helping gm well yeah he is but also all the other companies that sell hybrids and electric cars and I'm pretty sure that is spreading the wealth not a facists.”

“Relax, the $10,000 number mentioned in this (old) article never came to pass.

Instead we still have the $7500 electric car tax rebate - which was enacted by Bush back in 2008. Obama had nothing to do with it.

As for "Average" people affording a $35,000 car, some versions of the Ford F-150 pickup sell for as much as $50,000. And the F-150 is the most popular vehicle in America. Somehow Americans are affording this and lots of other expensive cars.

Where is the outrage over the dozens and dozens of other expensive cars on sale in America? At least electric cars will compensate for high car payments with low fueling bills.”
