WA state and trade ins

Normally, a trade in reduces your sales tax owed by the amount of the trade in. Washington has an ev benefit that you don't pay sales tax. So, is there any benefit to trading in for an EV? Or is it effectively negated?

you do pay sales tax on EVs in WA that cost more than $35 k. and the exemption for the low priced ones goes away after this month

you do only pay sales tax on the value above trade in value.
