The Obama administration announced several proposals Wednesday designed to boost sales of plug-in electric vehicles in the U.S.

The White House wants to adopt a $7,500 rebate for plug-in or electric cars instead of a tax credit and a $200-million grant program for communities for electric vehicle infrastructure, such as charging stations.

The proposals will be included in Obama's budget and must be approved by Congress.
