Here's an "interesting" -- and somewhat troubling -- bit of info. It seems that my home State of Tennessee -- the home of VW's U.S. EV production -- actually assesses EV owners $100/year over-and-above the "standard" vehicle registration fees. Apparently this was enacted in 2017 to recoup the gasoline taxes that EV owners "avoid" paying. Not exactly forward-thinking public policy IMO. Seems sorta like taxing non-smokers for the tobacco taxes they don't pay. Ref: https://afdc.energy.gov/laws/11787 I've confirmed this w/ my local vehicle registrar as well. Would be interesting to know if this legislative "device" might be used in other areas as well.
