California Bill May Boost Electric Car Sales

Last month, Senator Kevin De León, D-Los Angeles, introduced Bill 1275, which would create plug-in stations for electric cars in California and give a rebate to certain buyers.



The bill is part of the Charge Ahead California campaign, which is supposed to increase the use of electric vehicles in the state and make them a more financially sound option for people with moderate incomes, the AutoBlog reported. The state currently gives electric vehicle buyers a $2,500 rebate, but Bill 1275 will provide an additional $3,000 rebate to people with moderate incomes. Additionally, low-income residents of California who retire an old vehicle and move toward using shared transportation will receive a $3,000 credit for a public-transit pass or car-sharing membership.



"To clean up our dirty air, we need to make electric cars more accessible for our middle- and low-income families, not just the wealthy," said De León​. "By increasing targeted rebate, loan and carpooling/van sharing programs, California can lead the way for a cleaner and healthier environment."
