LaHood Wants Rebate At Dealership For Electric Car Buyers

I've heard a lot of folks say they'd love to own an electric car, but they can't afford the initial cost of one. Well, there could be some helpf for you in the future. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said yesterday he wants consumers to be able to get a tax rebate at dealerships when they buy electric cars.

The federal government currently offers a $7,500 tax credit on the purchase of electric vehicles, but that can't be taken until buyers file their income taxes. The new rebate could be applied when you actually buy the car.

The Las Vegas Sun has the story.
