    Right on, Tesla!

    A conglomerate of all EV manufacturers should get together and make this a national TV ad advocacy campaign! Either that or bribe Congress like the O&G industry has done.

    Aside from the high-quality Tesla-state of the union, I think this is the main statement:

    For quite a while, the best idea I've heard for providing a more effective incentive/support for the development of viable EVs (capable of being the primary car in a household), as well as a more effective incentive/support for those characteristics in battery technology which are currently the most critical for the success of EVs.

    If they modify the tax credit, I think it should be on estimated range, not on battery size. Putting a 50 kWh batter pack in a Ford F350 for example wouldn't get you the same range as on a small car.

    What a nice read!!!! Tesla Motors clearly makes the point for the continued Federal support of EVs. I think the incentive should move up stream between $500 to $1500 dollars to show stronger support.
