Research Strategy

During our research, we found several sources, including articles from NCSL, which highlighted the fact that nearly 21 states in the US have enacted special legislation for mandating an annual registration fee on electric vehicle owners. These states include California, Indiana, Colorado, Georgia, and Idaho, and several others. Another study from Consumer Reports highlighted that the states which currently have a registration fee requirement for electric vehicle owners include Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, and several others. In addition to registration costs, we also searched for additional types of costs such as annual surcharge or other types of charges that are mandated on EV owners, but information available on sources like NCSL, individual US Energy portals for each of these states was fairly limited, and we were unable to find any mentions for additional types of costs that are required from owner of EVs.

For the incentives part, we focused on providing incentives that are mainly provided by the state or the federal government and have abstained from including any incentives offered by electricity and fuel companies in these states since most of the incentives offered by them considered gas or electric costs. Sources like NCSL and EnergySage highlighted that not all of these states offer incentives to individual owners and are mostly aiding financial help and monetary benefits to manufacturers and other corporations for promoting the use of electric vehicles.
