Tesla share crash amid Republican bid to kill off electric car tax break

Very few will buy electric cars without the subsidy... even with a $7500 present from fellow taxpayers electrics are a miniscule percentage of overall car sales. The fallacy that electric cars are "green" when the electricity to run them is largely produced by coal, oil and natural gas burned at a distant power plant then inefficiently transmitted to the car moving the exhaust gasses from a tailpipe to a smokestack needs to be slain. And no, solar does not work for electric cars which are charged mostly overnight when the sun does not shine. The technology to make widely appealing electrics does not and may never exist. Throwing tax dollars at the industry won't change that. Another fantastic move by Trump to eliminate this waste of money.
