Tesla Motors has officially sold 200,000 vehicles in the United States, the automaker reports.
This means that the federal electric vehicle tax credit for Teslas will begin to phase out, with a reduction from $7,500 to $3,750, then from $3,750 to $1,875. Tesla is the first automaker to sell 200,000 or more electric vehicles!
While the federal tax credit will phase out for Teslas specifically, it's still available for other all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars.
For Oregonians purchasing or leasing EVs, the Department of Environmental Quality has a rebate program, as do several Oregon utilities.
