State Policy Description
Policy Component information last updated July 30 2018
One of the most important barriers to increased adoption of alternative-fueled vehicles (AFVs) is their typically-higher upfront cost as compared to a similar traditionally-fueled vehicle. Also, because they are relatively new to the market, many consumers are hesitant to spend the upfront money required to purchase an AFV when they can stay with something they are used to. Consumer hesitancy can be ameliorated through a range of state policies that provide incentives for the purchase of AFVs. For more information, see the full policy brief.
