Get $42,083 off a Tesla Roadster… in Colorado

Tesla Roadster

If you’re looking to purchase a sporty electric-car and live in the state Colorado, you’re in luck. With a special state tax credit, those looking to purchase a 2009 Tesla Roadster will receive a $42,083 tax credit bringing the base price of $109,900 to $67,800.

The tax credit ends on December 31 and offers Colorado residents a credit on their 2009 income tax for up 85 percent of the difference between the price of a alternative-fuel vehicle. That happens to translate into a generous 38.6 percent discount on the Tesla Roadster.

Tesla will also open its new store in Boulder, Colorado on Friday.
