BMW i Qualifies for Substantial Tax Credits and Savings

December 30th, 2014 by


While considering the numerous benefits of the new all-electric BMW i3, we explore its innovative advancements in sustainability, zero emissions, zero gas cost, and mobility services, to name just a few. The BMW i Electronaut Effect has already demonstrated the actual cost savings of owning the BMW i3 as compared to a gas-powered vehicle, as BMW tracked 700 “electronauts” and their real-road day-to-day driving statistics. While the gas cost savings potential is enormous, we have another added benefit to add to the list. The BMW i also qualifies for substantial tax credits, both at the federal and state levels.

The all-new 2014 BMW i3 is officially on the list as a qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 30D, allowing up to a $7,500 federal tax credit. In addition, the State of California is recognizing the advantages of having this all-electric BMW on the road by offering a tax credit of up to $2,500, providing a total tax credit of up to $10,000 potentially available to purchasers and lessees of the new 2014 BMW i3.

We recommend consulting a tax professional to validate credit availability and eligibility. The following is official information from the IRS regarding Electric Vehicle tax credits and is available on their website at: .
