new paragraph:
            ``(4) Special rules for certain off-highway vehicles.--
        Solely for purposes of this subsection--
                    ``(A) In general.--The term `motor vehicle' 
                includes any vehicle which is manufactured primarily 
                for use in carrying or towing loads or materials for 
                commercial or industrial purposes, whether or not on 
                public streets, roads, and highways and regardless of 
                the type of load or material carried or towed. The 
                preceding sentence shall not include any vehicle 
                operated exclusively on a rail or rails and any vehicle 
                operated primarily for recreational purposes.
                    ``(B) Additional credit.--In the case of a vehicle 
                which is a motor vehicle solely by reason of 
                subparagraph (A), the amount determined under paragraph 
                (1) shall be increased by--
                            ``(i) $2,000 if such vehicle's fuel cell 
                        system achieves an electricity generation 
                        efficiency of at least 40 percent but less than 
                        50 percent based on the lower heating value of 
                        the fuel, or
                            ``(ii) $4,000 if such vehicle's fuel cell 
                        system achieves an electricity generation 
                        efficiency of at least 50 percent based on the 
                        lower heating value of the fuel.
                    ``(C) Certain standards not to apply.--Subsection 
                (h)(10) shall not apply to a vehicle which is a motor 
                vehicle solely by reason of subparagraph (A).''.
    (c) Effective Date.--The amendments made by this section shall 
apply to vehicles placed in service after December 31, 2009, in taxable 
years ending after such date.
