Washington State authorities to introduce $100 electric car tax

The Washington State authorities have announced plans to introduce a $100 per year electric car tax which will be paid with annual vehicle registration renewals from 1 February 2013.

The authorities have suggested this additional income will be used to improve roads and highways but is this just the thin end of the wedge?

Really!? That figures. I’ll be sure to look into that before I decide if I’m taking my GEM with me to Seattle. Thanks for the warning.
