Bill Expands Federal Electric Car Tax Credit

SANTA ROSA, CA (Feb 4, 2009) -- US electric vehicle developers like ZAP (OTC BB:ZAAP.OB) of Santa Rosa, California, are asking Americans to join in supporting a new bill that would give more tax credits to more kinds of electric vehicles. The new legislation, S271, would increase the number of plug-in vehicles able to receive the tax credits from 250,000 to 500,000. The tax credits would expand beyond conventional four-wheel automobiles to include three-wheel and two-wheel vehicles, as well as low-speed neighborhood electric cars. Electric vehicles like ZAP's Alias and others would receive a tax credit equal to a percentage of the purchase price up to $4,000.

Often financial stimulus goes from the government to large corporations, and smaller innovative companies like ZAP are omitted. Over the past few decades, billions of dollars of taxpayer money have gone to the Big 3 to improve fuel-economy and support the use of advanced technologies like electric cars and almost nothing has been delivered while the industry has fought regulation at every turn. At the same time, the smaller companies that deliver receive nothing.
