Comin' at ya from South Carolina, a new state tax rebate will come carrying a whopping figure of $300. A little walking around money for you, perhaps to buy a smaller purse or wallet now that you've emptied your current accessory's contents buying your newfangled Tesla rocket. In all honesty, it's great that South Carolina is acknowledging electric cars with an official tax incentive, and hopefully it shows that the door is open for the electric market. But $300? And it applies to hybrids and alternative fuel vehicles as well, so I don't see what's so special about it. Besides, is that extra money-clip stuffing really going to make anyone finally say, "Golly, I guess I better buy that hybrid now"? All it does is sweeten the deal - but when it comes down to it, I guess it's still a good thing.
