"Those with incomes less than 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Limit will now be able to get up to $3,000 for a plug-in hybrid, $4,000 for an electric car, and $6,500 for a hydrogen fuel-cell car. At the same time, buyers with incomes over $250,000 will no longer be eligible for incentives on plug-in hybrids or electric cars."
"Almost 100,000 Russians follow Musk’s unofficial social media page, yet the Tesla founder seems to be promoting his dream car everywhere but here, forcing enthusiasts like Andrey Vratskiy to go to great lengths -- and expense -- to own one. Vratskiy, a 33-year-old software executive, wanted to swap his BMW X6 for a $75,000 Tesla S so badly that he agreed to pay almost double for it. With no sales network in Russia, he had to buy his sedan in the U.S. and spend $12,000 to fly it to Moscow, where it cost $50,000 to clear customs. When he first started driving his ocean blue Tesla two years ago, Vratskiy said he felt like an endangered species in the wild. Now he’s roaming with dozens of other members of the fan club he started and has spotted about 250 more."
