    The Federal electric motorcycle tax credit expired a couple years ago. Oregon just implemented an electric vehicle tax credit program and my old memory recalls it’s two parts......$2500 for anyone purchasing a qualified EV and an additional $2500 low income guideline credit. Both the Arcimoto FUV and the EMV SOLO qualify. Best to check your State’s Tax Credit Options.

    That equates to $5K max on the $20K Evergreen Edition FUV.

    Looks like the center headlight is included on the 1st SOLO shipment:

    My state has a fine rather than a credit. The federal even credit of 7500 is still being listed for startups but I don't know if this qualifies. I asked Solo and got crickets as a response. They are usually pretty quick so I assumed that means no.

    I'm really worried about your vision Coss, what you see as crap are actually white plastic wrap protection/covering an obviously red SOLO!:pound:

    The federal credit of up to $7500 only applied to four wheeled electric vehicles. The federal credit of up to $2500 did apply to electric MCs until it expired a couple of years ago. The Solo is federally designated by the NHTSA standards as a motorcycle. Rick posted the information on the electric MC credit. It shows no sign of being renewed.

    They don't unwrap them for the customer?? What a rip.
    And the ones in that video did not have the center light, I went back and watched it.
