You Can Get an EV for $5,000 Cheaper in Colorado


The State of Colorado has passed a new law allowing dealerships to mark $5,000 off an electric vehicle, right at the time of purchase.

The legislation is a point-of-sale incentive and when combined with the $7,500 federal tax credit, Colorado electric vehicle buyers can save a total of $12,500. The focus here is that it’s a point-of-sale incentive, meaning customers get the $5,000 discount right away rather than having to wait for a check or reimbursement. It also makes electric vehicles that much more appealing when shopping for a car, since their price tags are literally $5,000 less.

This also means Colorado has the most attractive incentive for purchasing an electric vehicle in the entire nation, and hopefully other states follow in its footsteps.

    needing $5000 incentive to move them is telling

    needing $7500 Fed incentive is even more telling

    needing $12,500 total incentive to sell them is broadcasting the obvious so loud and clear nobody can miss it

    imagine taxpayers subsidizing Blackberry phones over everything else because Blackberry’s QNX is the safest (actually yes it is the safest)
