DaimlerChrysler VP calls on congress for more tax breaks for fuel efficient cars
Toyota has already hit the 60,000 vehicle limit for the maximum credit of $3,150. Prius buyers can now only take $775 and after September they will get nothing. Committee chairman Sen. Jeff Binagaman, D-N.M, felt that the rules should be changed to provide incentives based on efficiency regardless of the technology. That would free up carmakers to use different types of drivetrains as long as they are more efficient.
