Here's a great article: http://gigaom.com/cleantech/doe-how-to-get-to-1m-electric-cars-by-2015/
The most interesting part is: "...To spur consumer demand, Obama has proposed to turn the $7,500 tax credit for electric cars into a rebate that car buyers can get when they buy the cars. Sandalow compares this proposal to the popular Cash for Clunkers program because consumers can claim the incentive quickly rather than waiting to claim it as an income tax credit."
That instant $7,500 would be awesome especially if in time for delivery for the Model S. I just hope that the price doesn't sky rocket for the 300 mile edition. I'm also all for giving 30 communities grants of up to $10 million each. Making an "electric highway" (one where you can recharge on overnights or swap out batteries and continue on) would achievable in CA, but across the US, that would be awesome!
