US Presidential Candidate Obama Calls for a Million Plug-in Hybrids
US Presidential candidate Barack Obama has called this week for a million plug-in hybrid vehicles to take to American roads by 2015.
To achieve this target, he has pledged $4 billion in federal aid, and tax credits of up to $7,000 per car for consumers to encourage them to choose such vehicles, if he is elected, reports Detroit News.
Obama has been campaigning this week in Michigan, heartland of US car-making. 'I know how much the auto industry and the auto workers of this state have struggled over the last decade or so', he said. 'But I also know where I want the fuel-efficient cars of tomorrow to be built: not in Japan, not in China, but right here in the United States of America.'
