Fisker calls for changes in EV incentives

Fisker is calling upon the federal government to implement a rebate of $7,500 plus $10 per mile of certified driving range for BEVs priced at $55,000 and less.

Fisker Inc. marked World Earth Day with a call to action regarding federally funded clean-vehicle incentives with a new program termed “75 And More For 55 And Less.”

Related to the current U.S. administration’s policy initiatives, Fisker is calling upon the federal government to implement a rebate of $7,500 plus $10 per mile of certified driving range for BEVs priced at $55,000 and less. All rebates would be applied at the time of sale, instead of waiting for a tax credit.

Under the Fisker proposal, an electric vehicle priced at $45,000, powered by a certified 300-mile range battery, would receive a point-of-sale rebate of $7,500 – and an additional $3,000 for the battery range for a total of $10,500, lowering the transaction price to $34,500.
