Evaluating the Connecticut Dealer Incentive for Electric Vehicle Sales

The Connecticut Hydrogen and Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR) program provides a consumer rebate of up to $5,000 for the purchase of an electric vehicle (EV) and a dealer incentive of $300 for each rebated vehicle. The dealer incentive feature is unique among statewide EV rebate programs and has generated interest among EV market stakeholders nationwide. In 2016, the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) conducted a study to understand how the CHEAPR dealer incentive is distributed and used by dealerships, and to explore its effectiveness in promoting the development of the EV market.
