The aim of the new VES is to reduce not only carbon emissions, but also four other pollutants (hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter), which get spewed out into the atmosphere, causing major damage to the environment.
So how does this affect your car-buying decision?
For starters, the $30,000 rebate for the Toyota Prius Hybrid used to be a big draw for those looking for an eco car but now that it has been bumped down to the neutral band, car buyers will have to fork out an additional $30,000 in order to own one.
The bottom line is this. If you’re looking to buy a new car in 2018, be prepared to fork out more cash and take the time to consider all your options before jumping into a new 10-year relationship.
