Federal Incentives

We're doing our best to track the growing list of federal and state-based incentives for purchasing an electric car or plug-in hybrid. See how much you can save to get behind the wheel of an electric-drive plug-in vehicle. Help us keep the list up-to-date by letting us know if you have info about new or changing incentives.

New Plug-in Car Purchases

Buyers of plug-in hybrids and electric cars benefit from a tax credit of $2,500 to $7,500, depending on the size of the battery in the car. On the low end of the spectrum, cars with 4 kWh battery packs will qualify for a $2,500 tax credit. The credit maxes out at $7,500 for cars with a 16 kWh battery pack. Every pure EV on the market today qualifies. The credits were provided as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as the “stimulus bill.” The incentive begins phasing out after an automaker sells 200,000 vehicles that are eligible for the credit. Tesla and Chevrolet have passed this level of sales so expect a smaller incentive on a purchase of their vehicles.

Utilities: Rebates and Better Electricity Rates

Many electric utilities around the country offer special rates, including time-of-use (TOU) rates, to reduce the cost of powering an electric car or plug-in hybrid. The reduced EV rate can significantly reduce the cost of charging your car. Check with your local utility company for exact rates and other details.

Southern California Edison, which provides electricity to 14 million people, now offers a $1,00 Clean Fuel Reward to customers who drive plug-in vehicles. (You get $1000 if you purchased or leased your car on or after January 1, 2019. You can still receive a $450 rebate if you purchased or leased your vehicle before 2019. There are additional incentives for installing a home charging station.) Other states such as Georgia and Florida, have offered perks and special rates for years—but the new SCE incentive makes second and third owners of a vehicle eligible for the payment.

PG&E customers with EVs are eligible to receive a $800 Clean Fuel Rebate for their use of electricity as a clean transportation fuel.

Discounts on Insurance

Several major insurance companies, such as Farmers, offer discounts of 5 percent or more for owners of electric and hybrid cars. Inquire with your insurance agent for details. We will continue to investigate which companies offer the best rates for EV owners and will post to this page.

Charging Equipment

Federal incentives for home charging stations expired at the end of 2017. However, many states offer individual EV buyers and businesses a credit for the purchase and costs of charging equipment.

A web search will reveal local incentives for a home charging station. Or check out the list of local incentives maintained by ChargePoint and Clipper Creek.

State Incentives

Arizona

The vehicle license tax (VLT) for an electric vehicle is changed to a rate of $4 per $100 of assessed valuation, which is determined by the following:(1) For the first year, the assessed value is 1-percent of the factory list price (FLP) of the AFV; (2) For subsequent years, the assessed value is depreciated 15-percent each year; (3) The minimum VLT for an AFV registration is $5. To calculate the savings for an Alternative Fuel Vehicle, take the Vehicle License Tax due (for gasoline or diesel vehicles) and multiply it by 0.02381. The result is what you would have paid (or $5, whichever is higher).

If you have a current AFV special plate, you can use the HOV freeway lanes at any time, regardless of the number of passengers. Electric powered vehicles are exempt from all emissions testing requirements.

California

The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) offers rebates for the purchase or lease of qualified vehicles. The rebates offer up to $2,500 for light-duty zero emission and plug-in hybrid vehicles that the California Air Resources Board (ARB) has approved or certified. The rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis to individuals, business owners, and government entities in California that purchase or lease new eligible vehicles. In periods when funding exceeds current budgets, waiting lists can form.

The rules and funding amounts are subject to change. For more information, including a list of eligible vehicles and other requirements, see the CVRP website.

California's Clean Vehicle Assistance Program provides grants and affordable financing to help low-income Californians purchase a new or used hybrid or electric vehicle. Its goal is to make clean vehicles accessible and affordable to all who qualify. The maximum income for an individual is $48,560, with a scale that climbs to a max of $100,400 for a family of four or $169,520 for a family of eight people. Grants are for new or used clean vehicles. You can get a $2,500 grant for a hybrid vehicle or a $5,000 grant for a plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle. Battery electric vehicles can also include a charging unit and its home installation. For more information, visit https://cleanvehiclegrants.org.

For public agencies, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s (Air District) PEV Rebate Program provides funding through vouchers that are issued in these amounts: (1) $2,500 per light-duty zero-emission vehicles, including battery electric and hydrogen electric vehicles; (2) $1,000 per light-duty plug-in hybrid electric vehicles; (3) $500 per zero-emission neighborhood electric vehicles; and (4) $2,500 per zero-emission motorcycles. Vouchers may be redeemed on a reimbursement basis and must be issued prior to the purchase or lease of vehicles.

Carpool lane stickers:
The California DMV issued Red decals in 2018 to first-time applications for qualifying vehicles. The Red decal will expire January 1, 2022. The California DMV is now also issuing Red decals to vehicles originally issued a Green or White decal on or after January 1, 2017. In late 2018, all eligible vehicle owners were mailed a pre-filled CAV decal application form with instructions and a return envelope from DMV. The pre-filled applications were mailed by the California DMV, to the vehicle owners address on file. If you believe your vehicle is eligible for a new Red decal and you did not receive a letter from DMV, please submit a completed CAV decal application form (REG 1000) to DMV for review.

If your vehicle was originally issued White or Green decals prior to 2017, your vehicle is no longer eligible for any CAV decal programs and is no longer be eligible to participate in the CAV decal program after January 1, 2019.

Assembly Bill 544 established a new Clean Air Vehicle (CAV) decal program for 2019. This decal will continue to allow eligible single-occupant vehicles into carpool lanes. The vehicle eligibility requirements for the new decal are similar to those used for the Red, White, and Green decal programs. Purple decals are valid until January 1, 2023. Red decals are valid until January 1, 2022.

Green and White decals expired at the end of 2018. Qualifying vehicles originally issued a Green or White decal in 2017 or 2018 are eligible to apply for a Red decal (expiring January 1, 2022). If you believe your vehicle is eligible for a Red decal, and you did not receive a pre-filled CAV decal application form with instructions and a return envelope from DMV, please submit a completed Clean Air Vehicle decal application form (REG 1000) to DMV for review.

If your vehicle was originally issued White or Green decals prior to 2017, your vehicle is no longer eligible for Clean Air vehicle decals and can no longer use high-occupancy vehicle lanes without the full required number of passengers. You may check if a vehicle was issued a decal prior to 2017 on DMV's website.

All new decals issued under this program expire on January 1 of the fourth year after the year in which they were issued. This provides an access period of three full years plus the partial year from when the decal was issued. For example, if a decal was issued anytime in 2019, it expires January 1, 2023. Please note that this program will end, and any remaining valid decals will expire on September 30, 2025.

Get more information about clean air vehicle decals via the California DMV website.
