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
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.
