I think there should be tax incentives, but they should be phased out by your income level. Give full credit to those making less than 75K, and half credit to those making less than 125K. Anyone else gets nothing. And yes, that means I'd get nothing. Would the loss of the tax credit have changed my mind? Probably. The non-PHEV gets good enough gas milage that I may have gone with it. The PHEV gets me a carpool lane sticker and the price difference, after incentive, was worth paying a little more than the regular Niro price for that. Without the incentive I might not have paid 7K more for the PHEV.
