Over the last two years, the metropolitan Atlanta area has become one of the single best sales regions for the Nissan Leaf electric car.

That’s due to a $5,000 Georgia state tax credit for the purchase of a battery-electric vehicle, which can be used to cut state income-tax liability over one, two, or three years.

The electric-car incentive has been under political attack for a couple of years now.

The fate of that tax credit–whether it survives untouched, is altered, or is killed altogether–could have a material effect on electric-car sales in the state and the region, perhaps even nationally.
