Drive Electric Vermont Now Offers A $500 Instant Discount For Plug-in Vehicle Lessees And Buyers

Today on InsideEVs, we present some plug-in electric vehicle registration data for the state of Vermont:

  • As of April 2014, over 630 plug-in electric vehicles were registered in Vermont
  • At the end of April 2013, only 263 plug-in electric vehicles were registered in Vermont
  • Year-over-year, that's a 240% increase in the number of registered plug-in electric vehicles
Those in Vermont credit the uptake to low maintenance and fueling costs, the federal tax credits and more widespread availability of plug-in electric vehicles.

Recently, Vermont introduced a $500 instant rebate on the purchase or lease of plug-in electric vehicles.  We suspect that will lead to increased registrations too.
