Costa Rica which has long been an environmental leader in the region has brought into force a  regulation that grants tax benefits on imports of electric cars that will help final prices to fall between $5,000  and $10,000 per unit.

With the announcement several additional measures become effective.  Among them: exoneration of spare parts for electric vehicles, exoneration of equipment for assembly and production of electric vehicles, exoneration of parking meter payments, exemption from taxes for parts for recharging centers."

None of which apply to Costa Rica. They are a bankrupt country (made more quickly by their "ultra green" agenda), holding out on bended knees for hand-outs (which generally come sparsely from the UN Committee on Climate Change as a reward for their participation).

Norway has more electrics than imaginable. No Import tax, no sales tax, no registration fees, no tolls, free parking and free charging. BUT, Norway has North Sea OIl royalties out the ying yang and a multi trillion dollar reserve.
