Rebates Up to $20K on New Electric Vehicles Available

March 26, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA - California fleets can now receive rebates on new zero-emission and electric vehicles of up to $5,000 per vehicle as part of the new Clean Vehicle Rebate Project ( CVRP). Certain zero-emission commercial vehicles are also eligible for rebates up to $20,000.

The program is funded by the California Environmental Protection Agency's Air Resources Board ( ARB) and administered statewide by the California Center for Sustainable Energy ( CCSE). A total of $4.1 million was appropriated from the ARB's Air Quality Improvement Program for the Project in order to promote the production and use of zero-emission vehicles, including electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell vehicles. Passenger vehicles can receive rebates up to $5,000 and commercial vehicles up to $20,000. The ARB has already committed to additional funding to continue the program through 2015.

Vehicle Eligibility

  • Battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell vehicles.
  • Cars, trucks, medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, zero-emission motorcycles, and neighborhood electric vehicles.
  • New vehicles only.
  • Vehicles must be purchased or leased on or after March 15, 2010.
  • Only ARB-certified or approved zero-emission or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

Clean Vehicle Rebate Project funding will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Funding for the Project is expected through 2015, with specific funding amounts determined annually by the Air Resources Board.
