Tax Credit for Buying an Electric Vehicle

When you purchase a qualifying new electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid vehicle that is one of the first 200,000 qualified EVs per manufacturer, you are eligible in a federal income tax credit up to $7500 on the vehicle. How large the tax credit is depends on the make and model of the vehicle.
