Within a 4 year span Obama is trying to push for 1 million EV's(electric vehicles) on the roads of USA and it seems he has a way to reach this goal with a tax credit to EV owners of $7500 from what this website says: Obama’s budget plans to give cash to EV buyers

I'm staying away from EV's for now cause of the lack of resources. Where would you charge it??

Would a tax credit of $7500 make you more likley to buy a EV?

Who here thinks this is a bad idea? we are still in recession, stopping wasteful spending is needed to bring the economy back on it's feet. But do we worry about our economy? or our environment? its a hard decision.... lets here what you guys have to say about this.

So obama has finally caught onto a plan that Canada has been offering for years... giving cash back incentives.

As for where you would charge an EV, i spoke to a spokes person at NAIAS, and the plan is to install EV charging station, at grocery stops, malls etc, where there is a high traffic flow for people.

Technically you have to spend money to make money, so it does help our economy, by creating new jobs etc etc etc, you get the point.

Another point being is okay lets say we have 20 000 000 millions cars right now running on Petrol that " pollutes the earth" What if we have 20 000 000 EV cars, sure it gives zero emission but electricity has to come from somewhere, and we barley have enough of that, doubt we can punch out the extra amount of electricity needed to provide that many ev cars without causing a mess in environment.
