ST. PAUL, Minn. — A bipartisan bill speeding through the Minnesota Legislature hands drivers a big break in the cost of filling up.

Just one speed bump, though. You’ll need to be driving the right kind of vehicle — one of maybe 5,000 electric models now on Minnesota roads.

Yet supporters claim even those who will never own, much less plug in, an EV will also benefit from the “time-of-day” legislation. The dirty secret, they say, is that electric vehicles are on a crash course with ratepayers.
