Ashland, Ore.-based Brammo, Inc., announced a $2,000 retail incentive on the 2013 Brammo Empulse and a $1,000 retail incentive on the 2013 Enertia Plus.
These incentives will ensure that those riders who want to purchase a model year 2013 Brammo don’t see the after-tax cost increase by 10 percent simply because the federal tax incentive has now expired.
At this time last year, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Congressman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) and U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) successfully sought an extension of the Federal Tax Credit for two-wheel electric vehicles for 2012 and 2013. That extension has expired.
Brammo continues to lobby for an extension of the Federal Tax Credit for two-wheel vehicles.
“It is widely accepted that federal incentives will help kick start the EV industry,” CEO and founder Craig Bramscher said. “Four-wheel EVs, from the Tesla S to the Smart car, receive a $7,500 federal tax credit. Our customers and dealers believe that a 10 percent incentive on two wheel EVs will provide benefits ranging from decreased dependence on fossil fuels to a cleaner environment, and we agree.”
