    Some, maybe.

    The change in the individual vehicle incentive from a $7500 credit to a $10,000 POS rebate is clearly good, depending on what is meant by "scalable." If it's like the current program, where the scaling factor is based on size of battery (or some other measure of non-gasoline capability), Tesla's good. If it's based on vehicle price, Tesla has a problem.

    If Tesla was considering developing a truck on the Model S skateboard, the 50% tax incentive would be huge.

    I think doing a truck or utility van on the S platform would be better than going to the Buestar next.
