Porsche reminded us earlier this week that new car shoppers interested in purchasing a 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid better hurry since the $1,800 one-time tax credit runs out on Dec. 31. Porsche fans aren’t the only ones that will have to rush into a dealer if their considering making the jump to hybrids, the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which gave life to the Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit, expires by the end of this year.
The termination of the credit will also affect a couple of diesel models on the road including the Mercedes-Benz ML 320 and the BMW 335d.
As far as we know, there are no tax incentives for 2011. Credits for vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan LEAF are separate and won’t expire on Dec. 31.
