Driving accounts for almost half of a household’s CO2 emissions. But there’s hope. A revolution is happening, and our state is helping it along. If your household is ready for a new vehicle you might want to join the party!
Here are the incentives:
In 2022 Massachusetts offers a $2500 rebate for the purchase of an electric vehicle through the Mor-EV Program. New cars under $50,000 are eligible. Please check the website for more details.
There is a federal tax credit of $7500 for the purchase of an electric vehicle for cars under $55,00 and larger vehicles below $80,000. This rebate will be given at the dealer but is income dependent. See rewiringamerica.org to use their calculator for your incentives.
Some fun facts:
No worries about gas price fluctuations.
No oil changes ever!
Reduce CO2 emissions.
E.V.s are fun to drive too! They have great acceleration. The Tesla can go from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds.
Are you worried about how to charge the car?
The car comes with a cable that plugs into a regular 120 V socket. There are faster options if you find you need it.
Range Anxiety is a thing of the past!
Many EVs now go over 200 miles between charges. They make a great commuter car and are great for a day trip to Portsmouth NH or Providence RI to see the RISD museum, or Sturbridge Village with the family. Ask Google maps to show charging stations near you and it will give you their availability too.
