Ebike Market Predictions | EP 61

Posted by on

Hey Everybody! Welcome back to another episode of the Bolton Ebikes Podcast. I already did an episode where I talked about the proposed 30% federal tax credit. That information was based on the initial press release. But this week I have some new information. Thanks to one of you. One of the listeners of the podcast and viewers of the YouTube channel, I was able to get a copy of the actual text.

And so now. I can give you some more detailed answers. Some of the questions that came up and point out one of the major flaws I see in The Bill. 

I hope with your help, we can get fixed.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about: 

  • Is the 30% tax credit a definite decision and when will it be something you can take advantage of. 
  • Does this mean you can get 30% off of the price of your next ebike purchase or is that something you are writing off on your taxes?
  • What my predictions are for the next year for the ebike market in general.
  • Is there a limitation on the number of bikes you can purchase and still qualify for the tax credit?
  • Does this apply to other motorized vehicles?
  • Will this have any effect on the used ebike market?
  • And so much more!

This is my forecast on the ebike market. I think there's going to be a lot of very, very affordably priced bikes on the market if The Bill passes. There, you have it, there's my thoughts. That's a little bit of new information for you and I'll keep you informed if we find out anything else. Thanks again for listening to the Bolton Ebikes Podcast.

It turns out we weren't and we had a snow storm that can slow down trucking and shipping and all sorts of other things. It also knocked out our high speed internet and that just caused more havoc for the week. Thankfully, all of those things are getting fixed and hopefully we'll be back up to speed by the time you are listening to this episode right now.

  • It’s likely that if passed into law in 2021, a provision in the bill will designate a beginning date.
    Placed in service after Jan. 1, 2021 would be an appropriate start date for the tax credit assuming any retroactive designation. Also, from your reading it appears the credit is renewable every three years. That will drive innovation and broad adoption, both are
    goals within a “renewable economy initiative “.
