Gasoline Superusers: A New Model for EV Purchase Incentives
To meet President Biden’s target of cutting carbon emissions in half by 2030, the U.S. must redefine its approach to incentivizing the switch from gas-powered vehicles to EVs. Instead of applying the same incentive to all drivers regardless of how much gasoline they use, EV incentives should be calculated based on the amount of gasoline displaced by the purchase of an EV.
This is a key finding of a new report Coltura published today. The report, “Gasoline Superusers,” provides the first in-depth look at the data available on drivers in the top 10% of gasoline consumption, so-called “gasoline superusers.” It analyzes EV incentives and other policy options for transitioning superusers to EVs and presents a model for achieving significant cuts in gasoline consumption by 2030.
