Tax Breaks For Hybrid Cars

The declining tax credits created by the manufacture limit will cut credits for Lexus and Toyota hybrids in half by the last part of September, and to one-fourth of the current rate next April. Still, complete tax credits are offered for Toyota's market-leading hybrids through the conclusion of the present quarter. In addition, it is probable that sales will be amplified as buyers dash to acquire the highest tax break.

Following the assessment of Toyota's sales in the first quarter of 2007, the IRS has announced that the Prius buyers may still claim for tax credits, but in just a slight amount. The entire amount of the credit now presented to a Prius car buyer is just $787.50.

The IRS also declared that buyers of qualified GM hybrid cars may claim a tax credit from $250 to $1,300. The Chevrolet Silverado hybrids and the GMC (General Motors) Sierra hybrid trucks has a tax credit of $650 for 4WD models and  $250 for two-wheel drive models. The Aura Hybrid holds a $1,300 credit, while the line of Saurn Vue has a $650 credit.

2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid

Nissan announced to the public its first entry into the hybrid automobile industry with its 2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid.

Hybrid car aficionados were thrilled with its first release into the hybrid car market. On the surface, the new 2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid will take on the comparable appearance of the non-hybrid Altima. This Nissan hybrid will also operate on the same gas motor as its non-hybrid counterpart.

Nonetheless, more people are anticipating for further developments in Nissan hybrid cars. The  2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid Car features an extra hybrid electric system that helps diminish gas emissions and make the most of its gas mileage with an projected fuel economy of 41 mpg - miles per gallon - for city driving and 36 mpg - miles per gallon - for highway driving.

Emission-wise, the 2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid has qualified for the Partial Zero Emission Vehicle standards (PZEV). This Nissan hybrid is classified as AT-PZEV. Translation: this cool hybrid will reign over roads and highways of the eight U.S. states that have espoused the California standard for vehicle emission examinations.

Presumably, with the growing environmental concerns of car drivers, Nissan hybrid cars will rock the streets and highways of the future.
