The mitsubishi i-miev starts at 23k. There is a $7500 federal rebate, but states have rebates too. What is the cheapest you can get an ev for? I know California has a rebate of $2500 and Georgia has a $5000 but Georgia is an income tax credit. What if your income doesn’t qualify you for that large of a tax credit. Basically, I am confused by which vehicle is cheapest and how the tax credits work.
But in an ideal situation an ev could cost 10-15k after rebates, I think. Not bad, and pretty affordable for people who need an in city commuter car. However you’d need a second car for longer trips. Fuel savings could reach 2k a year. But battery life may only be 100k or so.
