Need more convincing? The Obama administration now wants to offer you an instant $10,000 tax credit to change your mind:
According to a fact sheet sent to reporters today, President Obama will once again highlight a proposal to increase the tax credit for electric vehicles.
More importantly, the president will propose making that tax credit available as soon as you buy the vehicle.
According to the White House, Obama will proposes that the tax credit is "available at the point-of-sale by making it transferable to the dealer or financier, allowing consumers to benefit when they purchase a vehicle rather than when they file their taxes."
