- Tier 1 is half the cost of tier 2.
- Tier 1 also applies anytime your vehicle is sharing Supercharger power with another car.
EV Tax Credits
In the US, people have a federal tax credit of $7,500 for Electric vehicles. It varies based on the size of the battery but because Tesla uses big batteries they qualify for the full amount of federal tax credit. Once a manufacturer hits their 200,000-car delivered in the US that starts to phase out and Tesla has confirmed that they’ve done that in July. That means that if you have a tax liability of $7,500 or more, the next year you’ll be able to get that money. This year i.e. 2019, the Tesla tax credit dropped to $3,750, 50 percent of the previous amount so in 2020 you will be able to get $3,750 back on your tax refund.
