A new California state report showed that 77 percent of consumers that bought an EV earned more than $100,000 a year. That has led California and a number of other states to draft and pass new regulations that will ration incentives in an effort to stop subsidizing “limousine liberals.”It's very hard to justify.
California Republican State Senator Ted Gaines told SiliconValley.com that he introduced legislation limit rebates to cars that cost no more than $40,000, because the majority of rebates have gone to individuals earning at least twice the national income.
“It’s hard for the average Californian to understand why someone buying a $100,000 car should get a rebate.” Gaines added, “That’s the same question I posed to myself, and it was hard to justify.”
