Hybrid Car Tax Credit
Encouraging Low Fuel Consumption Cars

The Hybrid Car Tax Credit goal is to encourage the sale of more hybrid cars. Hybrid cars are exhibiting more miles per gallon than conventional cars, therefore more hybrid cars mean less nationwide fuel consumption.

Hybrid Car Definition

Hybrid cars have drive trains powered by both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor driven by a rechargeable battery. Many currently available hybrid vehicles are qualified for the tax credit
