DataXstream Announces Electric Car Incentive Plan for Employees

WILLIAMSBURG – While Gov. Bob McDonnell wants the General Assembly to approve fees for owners of hybrids and electric cars because they don't pay as much in fuel taxes, one local company is offering to pick up the lease costs of an electric car for employees.

McDonnell's proposed $100 annual fee for alternate fuel vehicles is one of the most controversial parts of his transportation initiative, which gets rid of the gas tax and raises the sales tax to direct more money to road construction.

That makes Tuesday's announcement from DataXstream LLC particularly timely.
