A $ 7,500 awarded by the federal government, we must add several thousand state government (in California, for example, offer 5,000, Colorado 6,000, etc) and local authorities (the San Joaquin Valley residents, companies like Sony Pictures give away an additional $ 5,000 to employees who buy it.) In fact, any such employees, can get a iMiEV for $ 8,000 (after incentive). Pretty amazing.
Even Americans who do not belong to that group so elite, iMiEV can buy at a discount of $10,000, making it more affordable that a car like a Honda Fit. Interested buyers (USA) can complete a booking form.
Electric vehicle with lithium batteries do not emit CO2 or damage the environment if the electricity comes from renewable sources like wind power, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal. Wind turbines can supply electricity to electric cars in the future and will also serve to store and regulate the electricity intermittent wind energy sector.
