States have been offering tax credits and other financial incentives for the purchase of electric and hybrid vehicles since the 1990s. But at least seven states have recently repealed or exhausted the funding of their programs, or allowed the programs to expire, and Colorado is considering repealing its program as well (SB 188). Ten states, meanwhile, have imposed and at least 10 others are considering levying extra registration fees on owners of electric vehicles. Georgia both repealed its incentive program and levied a fee on electric vehicles in 2015.
