Massachusetts Considers Offering Plug-In Vehicle Purchase Incentives; HOV Lane Access for EVs
It seems more and more states are looking to offer some sort of incentive towards purchasing electric vehicles.
The latest state to jump on the bandwagon is Massachusetts.
Officials are currently looking at overhauling the state’s electric and hybrid vehicle incentives, which are basically limited to discounted charging station installs and rebates for fleet purchases at the moment.
That may change though as the state looks to spur electric vehicle sales.
There will be meeting held in Massachusetts this September to ink out more details and by next year a plan should be finalized.
Nothing specific is on the books yet, but the general idea is to find a way to bring down the purchase cost of electric vehicles. That sure sounds like some sort of purchase rebate, tax credit or other type of incentive to us.
It’s further believed that HOV-lane access may be part of the package in Massachusetts.
We hope to know more in September.
