Total government incentives in Japan could top $30,000 for hydrogen cars
Yes, according to The Sydney Morning Herald, Aichi prefecture is considering hydrogen fuel cell vehicle incentives worth around one million yen (just under 10,000 US) on top of the two million already discussed. Various government and stakeholder groups are also pledging to install around 100 hydrogen refueling stations in Japan. In Japan, national incentives for electric vehicles only climb to around $8,500.
According to the SMH, lopping $30,000 off the price of Toyota's new, $69,000 hydrogen car means a roughly 40 percent discount and is enough to drop the price of the newfangled car into the same category as a luxury hybrid like the Lexus CT200h in Japan. No price for hydrogen cars has been announced in the US (where we offer a $4,000 incentive), but can you imagine how popular current plug-in vehicles would be with a $30,000 discount? Whew. Oprah would make sure we all get a Tesla.
