When thinking about the cost of the car, one must consider the DMV taxes that will be charged. I wanted to be sure, so I checked the Vermont sales rate on vehicles and it is 6%. This adds on quite a bit to the overall cost, so one thing led to another, and suddenly I've written to the DMV, the governor, as well as writing a proclamation! There is a place to do so on the Governor's website, so I figured, what the heck! My main reason for getting this car is an ecological one. There(hopefully)will be the $7500 federal tax credit, but, when I thought about it, I realized that we are going to be on the cutting edge here. It wouldn't be costing states that much to offer waivers to EV's, and it would bring great publicity to the states that enacted such an idea. I think that we are in an interesting position to take action here. If we all write our congressmen, governors, DMV's, we might actually be able to do something positive. It certainly would be an extra incentive to people considering buying a Tesla. It would add up to thousands saved that wouldn't be saved on ICMs. Any thoughts?
