A Message to Consumers: Fight for Equal EV Tax Incentives
November 5, 2021
At Honda, we believe in freedom of choice for American consumers and fair treatment of all American autoworkers, with all of us working together to fight global climate change. That's why we're asking for your help to ensure equal treatment of consumer tax credits for the purchase of an electric vehicle (EV).
Honda associates have been building cars in America for nearly 40 years. And Honda is already America's most fuel-efficient, lowest-emissions full-line automaker, according to the U.S. EPA.
But our actions to address climate change don't stop there. We have announced plans to make 100% of our vehicle sales electrified by 2040. And we plan to build EVs at our plants in the U.S.
Currently, consumers can receive up to a $7,500 federal tax credit when purchasing an EV. Experts agree these credits are essential to convince American consumers to buy EVs on a scale needed to address the climate crisis.
Unfortunately, a new proposal in Congress would provide an additional $4,500 credit only for consumers who buy EVs made by three legacy Detroit automakers.
- Don't Honda and Acura customers who want to purchase an electric vehicle deserve the same credit as customers buying one from a Detroit automaker?
- Don't Honda's American autoworkers deserve the same treatment as every other U.S. autoworker?
We value our customers, and we value our associates who build vehicles for them. Please encourage Congress to provide fair and equal treatment of all consumers and American autoworkers as they consider proposed changes to the consumer EV tax credit.
Contact your member of Congress at 202-224-3121 and urge them to oppose the proposed changes to the EV tax credit being considered as part of the Build Back Better Act.
