Tax Credits Too Expensive? Feds resolve issues with the Cadillac Lyriq and Tesla Model Y

The United States government based its price and categorization requirements

on Corporate Average Fuel Economy, or CAFE standards, when it unveiled its 

new regulations for tax credits for the purchase of a new electric car. This led 

to certain SUV models being mistakenly categorised as sedans, which would 

have rendered them too costly to be eligible for tax credits. Examples include the basic 

Cadillac Lyriq and the two-row Tesla Model Y. The United States Department of the Treasury 

has found a solution to this strange conundrum, and is now basing the federal EV tax credits 

of traffic: one coming from the left and one coming from the right. Teslas have become adept at doing this manoeuvre after first finding it difficult.
