Buy an EV, get an Empulse FREE… In Colorado!
UPDATE: THE COLORADO TAX REBATE NO LONGER APPLIES TO ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLES !!!
As you may already know, Colorado has some of the most generous tax rebates for alternative fuel vehicles, but did you know you could use that program to net yourself a Brammo Enertia, or even an Empulse, for FREE? Check it out:
Step 2: Next year claim both the $7,500 federal tax credit and the $6,000 (Colorado) state rebate for the EV you purchased this year. Check here to see what rebates are available. (Specifically the Income 67 document)
Step 3: Take that $13,500 and put it towards the purchase of a 2013 Brammo Empulse and finance the difference.
Step 4: Now the following year claim the $6,000 state rebate again and pay off that Empulse loan. (Note: There is currently no federal tax credit for 2 wheeled EVs, just the state rebate)
Presto! Free Brammo Empulse with change to spare for accessories! Pretty neat, huh?
This was my original plan before I was given an Empulse! We already have our 2013 Volt, which we LOVE. (A review on our Volt is forthcoming). Now I just need to find something to do with that tax rebate money I was going to spend on an Empulse… I wonder when Brammo will start selling the Encite dirt bike…
DISCLAIMER: This ASSUMES that the tax rebate for the 2013 Brammo Empulse and the EV you chose is the full $6,000, in all likeliness the Empulse should qualify for the full amount. We will know as soon as the Income 67 document is revised (hopefully soon). I will update this post when I have exact information available. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, Im sure you will come to a similar conclusion… If not, just convince yourself that my numbers are correct and buy an EV and an Empulse anyway, you will be glad you did!
