RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Consumer auto resource Automoblog recently published an article detailing the changes to electric vehicle (EV) tax credits in the federal government’s new Inflation Reduction Act legislation. The guide portion of the article, which includes a helpful infographic, can help people understand the new tax credit system and how they can use it. Some of the most significant changes mentioned in the article are:
- Removes the 200,000-vehicle cap for manufacturers
- Introduces a $4,000 tax credit for purchasing used EVs
- Offers tax credits at the point of sale rather than as a tax deduction
- Removes eligibility for cars with Chinese-made battery components in 2025
- Requires that final assembly be in North America for vehicles to qualify for the credit
- Introduces price limits for the tax credit, set at $55,000 for cars and $80,000 for trucks, vans, and SUVs
Automoblog also takes a look at the potential effects these changes could have on the EV market, whose growth has taken off in recent years. The article suggests that while some of the changes to the tax credit make it easier for consumers to purchase a new or used EV, additional requirements on sourcing and assembly may be hard for manufacturers to meet at first.
