Totally get that. This has been said on this forum for years. The goal of issuing the EV credit again is to allow the public to afford an EV, not for the companies to turn around and up the prices...that cancels the whole thing out, so then what's the point? It's not just me in my specific situation - I know tons of middle class couples who still don't even have 1 EV.
It's widely understood that a tax credit for purchase of a new EV helps develop a larger market for EV's at a price that works for both the consumer and the manufacturer. This bill was always about jump-starting EV manufacturing and sales, not helping consumers. If it was about helping consumers it would have included new ICE sales as well.
