The U.S. taxpayer currently subsidizes every electric car sold to the tune of $7500 in tax credits. That’s out of your pocket to pay someone else to drive a car that already costs $8000 on average more than a gas powered vehicle. PLUS, California hands out another $15,000 of taxpayer money in electric vehicle tax breaks. All while studies show that total CO2 emissions from recharging sources can exceed that of conventional gas vehicles.
