Keep in mind that the federal tax credit question for a reserved Ariya sold in 2023 is exactly that, a question. Besides, I think everyone can agree that the latest IRS guidelines released December 30, surely won’t be the last ruling regarding this matter. As stated in a different thread in this forum, I am not convinced that a reserved Ariya delivered in 2023 automatically becomes ineligible for tax credit because the IRA transition rule actually freezes our delivery date as being August 15, 2022. In any case any Ariya reservation holder choosing to jump off of the band wagon here will soon come to realize that even a VW id.4 made in Tennessee will likely only qualify for 50% of the tax credit ($3,750) after March of this year. So I’m not willing to settle for a vehicle I consider inferior to the Ariya only to realize a $3,750 tax credit.
As one forum member also pointed out in a different post, Ariya reservation holders also have the opportunity to hold the line somewhat on inflation for the past 13 months, after we realize our $1240.00 reservation discount. So everything considered, I‘m going to move forward with the purchase of the Ariya in 2023, roll the dice on the Ariya‘s tax credit viability, as I don’t intend to jump ship any time soon.
