Driving an electric car is very cool for a lot of reasons. But one of the perks right now is the incentives treasure trove available to those who take the electric car plunge. While there are numerous Federal and State tax credits, there are also a few local rebates as well.
For example, the City of Riverside offers a rebate of up to $2,000 for the purchase of an electric vehicle.
Southern California Edison has special rate plans for "fueling" electric cars, which greatly reduces the cost of charging during off-peak (6:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m.) and super off-peak (midnight to 6:00 a.m.) times.
Don't forget driving solo in the carpool lane. DMV offers "single occupant carpool lane stickers" to vehicles that are full electric like the BMW ActiveE.
What other incentives can you find out there?
