>400k
So about 10% of our roads? Meh.

Here's a map but looks like it's probably showing the original 200k?

I somehow missed the hummer resurrection happening.

US tax & spend package appears to have made it. Senate passed. House should rubber stamp it. It should put pressure to keep prices lower than they've been trending lately.

"The deal extends a popular $7,500 per vehicle consumer tax credit for the purchase of electric vehicles, a win for EV makers like General Motors Co., Tesla Inc. and Toyota Motor Co. But to win the backing of Manchin, companies will have to comply with tough new battery and critical minerals sourcing requirements that could render the credits useless for years for many manufacturers. Not all manufacturers stand to benefit from the credit. New cars that cost more than $55,000 and $80,000 for pickups and SUVs wont qualify for the credits."
