First of all, congrats on shopping around for your first electric car! All-electric and hybrid cars are eligible for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500. You can claim a tax credit once for each qualifying vehicle.
The tax credit also must be claimed in the year that the vehicle was purchased. Regardless of the year, you’re able to claim a credit for each electric car purchased.
