    Not sure why this hasn't been front-and-center for the past month, but just found this by accident, and THERE'S NEARLY NO TIME TO GET IT DONE.

    Please forward widely (and quickly):

    Increase the EV tax credit cap per manufacturer.

    100,000 GOAL

    Internal Revenue Code Section 30D provides a credit for Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicles including passenger vehicles and light trucks.

    The credit begins to phase out for a manufacturer’s vehicles when at least 200,000 qualifying vehicles have been sold for use in the United States.

    A significant amount of consumers across the United States this past week have made the choice for an electric vehicle over a fossil fuel vehicle. Many of those consumers will be ineligible for the credit because of the phase out and many more will decide not purchase an electric vehicle because certain manufacturers will exceed the 200,000 vehicle cap.

    We ask the White House to help change legislation to increase the tax credit cap in order to further promote the use of alternative fuels.

    I've signed 2 of these already and neither has come anywhere near 25,000 signatures, let alone 100,000.

    If you're going to get this through, you'll need more than just the tesla forum to be signing it. Go to other manufacturer forums and post it, go to environmental forums, use social media to ask friends to take a minute and sign.

    Just posting it to this forum is going to fail every time.
