Gov. Polis proposes new incentives for electric cars, electric lawnmowers and e-bikes

From Colorado Public Radio

Gov. Jared Polis is pushing lawmakers to make it even cheaper for Colorado residents to buy an electric car, electric bike or electric lawnmower.

The governor announced the plan as an amendment to his 2023-2024 budget proposal Tuesday. Ahead of the upcoming legislative session, he now wants legislators to approve $120 million in new tax credits to nudge the public to buy products that combat climate change and air pollution.

“This is for Colorado to get a head start to help more people afford electric vehicles earlier and reduce the cost in Colorado,” Polis said at a press event at the governor’s mansion.
