Massachusetts recently started an EV rebate program funded with $1.86M to grant rebates up to $2500 for purchasers of EV's. I'm doubtful that this is the best use of the money. It seems to me that the main barrier to EV adoption is range and/or the lack of charging infrastructure, not a marginal price difference. The same funding could have added perhaps 150 level 2 chargers around the state at destinations such as the outer Cape, the Berkshires, etc. Or, probably much better, 8 or so level 3 DC charging stations around the state that would make for a very robust charging infrastructure. If, rather than rebates, such infrastructure construction was done by governments at all levels I think the range issue would drop into the general political background noise.
