This special report documents research on efforts underway to accelerate the growth of the plug-in electric vehicle market in the US. Included are 11 key findings followed by recommendations from Plug In America to stimulate PEV market growth.
Past Policy Incentives:
- Supporters (successfully) emailed over 50,000 letters to U.S. Congressional members urging that a tax credit for EV purchases be included in the stimulus package.
- Plug In America helped obtain HOV lane status for plug-in hybrid vehicles in CA and an extension for all-electric vehicles until 2015.
- Action Alerts
- Plug In America stopped a bill in the CA legislature that would have slowed the adoption of EVs in California. The bill removed limitations on HOV (carpool) lane access for plug-in hybrids (PHEV, green decal), but allowed HOV lane access for even cleaner battery-electric vehicles (BEV, white decal) to sunset on January 1, 2019. This would have been counterproductive as BEVs are a key to achieving California’s climate goals. The bill also could have prevented PHEV buyers from obtaining a green decal unless they met certain income requirements. Regardless of the intent, this would have slowed PHEV sales and also threatened the state’s climate goals.
