State Offers As Much As $6,000 In EV Perks
Colorado offers incentives worth as much as $6,000 for buyers of new electric vehicles, with the exact amount based on how much more the buyer paid for the EV compared to the price of a similar gas-powered car. But, if the vehicle is used, comes from out of state, and hasn't used its vehicle identification number (VIN) to previously collect an EV incentive in Colorado, it will qualify for Colorado's perk. Somewhere, John Denver is smiling.
Colorado has long been associated with the green-energy, crunchy-granola movement that you would think would to spur some heavy-duty EV adoption. Still, the state's EV-charging infrastructure doesn't exactly reflect that. According to the US Department of Energy, Colorado, which makes up about 1.6 percent of the US population, accounts for two percent of publicly accessible plug-in vehicle charging outlets in the country.
