What your saying just is not true. The tax credit for hybrid vehicles did not go solely to Toyota...it actually was an incentive for the consumer much like the one for the Chevy Volt or electric golf carts that get the same thing. So your logic here is totally flawed. You really need to search out the facts on this issue. The whole point of this post is about money being spent to create jobs in Mexico. Not a hybrid vehicle tax credit.



Let me get this straight. Because Toyota didnt get ALL of the tax subsidy, that means it's not a subsidy? Toyota collected most of that tax credit, what does that make it?

Can you point me to the people who got a tax credit on their Volts?....What is the name of that program available to Volt owners, and where are they buying these Volts at?

Sometimes, I think you just make stuff up as you go. You have some nerve telling others to check their facts when in fact you seem to continually distort or outright lie about "facts"

The bill passed by the House 263 to 171, and is certain to be signed by Bush. What this means to future Volt buyers is what’s called the Transportation and Domestic Fuel Security Provision.

This provision provides a tax credit for buyers of plug-in electric vehicles and provides a base of $2,500 plus an additional $417 per kwh for batteries greater than 4 kwh. For the Chevy Volt, that works out to $7,500 per car.

But act quick, the credit will be applied to the first 250,000 plug-in cars sold in the US and will be phased out to 50% for the following two quarters, and 25% for the two quarters after that before ending. The total cost of the credits will be $758 million.

This is an exciting day for the Chevy Volt. For Americans, its purchase price essentially just dropped $7,500 in the form of a new tax credit just signed into law. That may be the difference consumers need to launch the Chevy Volt to stardom. That is, unless a competitor like Toyota captures the market before GM can produce enough Volts.

Now it’s a race against time for GM to produce Chevy Volts and explode its marketshare in “new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicles”. The new government tax credit will put “$2,500 plus $417 for each kilowatt hour of traction battery capacity in excess of 4 kilowatt hours” back into the driver’s bank account.

The government is acting aggressively to head off an economic downturn with credits like this one and a $7,500 credit that qualifies as an interest free loan for new home owners.

But if you want to qualify for the tax credit you’ll have to act quickly because only the first 250,000 vehicles sold are guaranteed to qualify. The idea is to usher in a new class of drivers who are using energy efficient, and economically sound vehicles.

GM’s latest pricing estimates hover somewhere under $40,000 for the Chevy Volt, which still makes it a hard pill for middle class America to swallow, but definitely more palatable. It’s also important to highlight the savings in gas, especially if barrels of oil continue to rise in price. Money currently slotted for petroleum could instead be used for part of a monthly car payment.

It behooves GM to keep its prices low, or it will risk losing an opportunity to be a market leader to competitors like Toyota and Nissan who have their own plug in electric vehicles planned.

This is certainly some good news for would-be Chevy Volt owners, let’s hope a car like this can convince consumers to act out their part and start spending some of that hard-earned cash!

Check the Volt website...it clearly states that a Volt qualifies for the $7500 credit.

What does that have to do with anything. The guy said the Prius was subsidized by US tax dollars and you said he was wrong, told him to check his facts and then you post all this jibberish about a subsidy that hasnt even happened yet. The guy was right, you were wrong, the hybrids did collect a tax credit for quite a long time. No Volts were in on that, how could they?

I'll ask you again, has anyone collected on this credit, who owns a Volt currently, and where are they buying their Volt at?

Nobody I know...but when they roll out in quantity you get $7500 off which brings the price to around $32k. I am goingh to go drive one though for sure. If I had one with my commute I would only use gas on Saturday. I'll do the calculations and if the cost of no fuel M-F breaks even with the cost and 5 year depreciation of the car over 5 years I may get one. But I don't think it will.

Please delete this information before GMBoy sees it.... crackmeup

Of course by then a Prius might be going for $15k

So, was the guy right? The guy you insulted and told him to "check his facts".....Did the Toyota hybrids collect a US tax payer credit?


Yes or No? Not more of your [censored] and non sensical [censored].

How did this get from the 500 to prius tax credits?

Anyway, I agree. They should build the 500 at the PAtriot/Caliber plant. At the end of the 20th century Chrysler was by far in the strongest position of the domestic automakers. They had a very strong product lineup, reliability was good, and so was quality. Then Mercedes came in and everything went to pot.

Correct you are.

Mexico is part of North America.

Is that plant still there? I thought it was torn down some years ago. You might be thinking of Belvedere.

Heck Belvedere could probably absorb another car line with no trouble. All they make there is, what, the Caliber and Patriot I believe?


I'm batting a thousand. You're right, I was thinking of the Belvedere plant.


How about bringing back Plymouth and the Plymouth Belvedere! hide

That truly is sad. I see so much stuff going offshore, just walk through the tool aisle at home depot, every time you go more and more stuff is made somewhere else.

My wife has a first-world produced VW rabbit. We went and saw the third-world produced Jetta wagon, a car we had high hopes for due to the diesel, getting us 42 MPG in a MT wagon that would be a great family car.

After looking at them, maybe it was cost cutting measures, maybe not, but it looked and felt cheaper, lousier brand new than her 2 year old rabbit.

And it wasnt just switchgear. The "carmex" or whatever the glass type was, was far more wavy than the German-made Sekurit Saint-Gobain glass.

Add onto that the fact that I am not getting a discount for a third-world vehicle compared to the first-world produced unit sitting right next to it.

Bad deal all around.

Ive tried to stop buying tools from HD that have been offshored. This means some previously decent prands with good tools. It may well be that the scenario where Kia, Honda and Toyota build vehicles here that are more domestic than our "domestic" vehicles, and the effect of employing all those workers is more valuable than having a domestic company by name, who employs all foreign laborers.

What is more sad is that we have had some really great experiences with our chrysler products.
