IRS tax credits for Honda hybrids will be halved January 1st

We know that, because of the Prius' popularity, Toyota and Lexus hybrid vehicles will lose their IRS tax credits at the end beginning of October. We've also know it was likely that Honda would finally sell 60,000 hybrids in the U.S. and so begin the mandated halving of IRS tax credits .The IRS and Honda have now announced that this has indeed come to pass (61,625 as of the end of July) and so, starting on January 1, 2008, the tax credits will be sliced in half. Until that day, tax credits are as follows:
For the first half of 2008, these credits will be half of the amount listed. In the second half, take off another 50 percent. Once we get to 2009, unless the laws change, no Honda hybrid will qualify for any IRS tax credits.
