United States will refuse a tax credit of up to $ 7,500, as suggested by President Donald Trump. This view was expressed by a senior representative of the US Department of Transportation.

“If you give up some of these incentives, demand is likely to somewhat decrease,” says Derek Kan, deputy minister of transport for political affairs and former Lyft chief, said at the CERAWeek Energy Conference in Houston. – When you take tax breaks, as we know from the underlying economy, there is likely to be a drop in demand, because the price is a bit high. “

Earlier this week, the White House said that the cessation of a loan after the company sold 200,000 electric vehicles could save $ 2.5 billion in taxpayers over the next decade. Automakers insisted on extending the loan.
