The credits haven't actually expired yet, and we are only talking about three affected manufacturers. Notice how the MRSP has been dropping on these cars as market forces take over. Extending subsidies will likely end up costing consumers and taxpayers. PHEVs are basically a compliance car only with a very limited market without subsidies. EVs (and unsubsidized hybrids) are the near and long term future and pure EV's are going to end up with lower MRSP than ICE cars with no subsidy. If you own Tesla stock, this bill is a great thing. Otherwise, I'm skeptical. The subsidies should run their course having accomplished their purpose.
