Clean Vehicle Rebate Project

Choose an Eligible Electric Vehicle and Apply for a Rebate

If you submitted an online application on or after March 28, 2014, you will receive your rebate check in September 2014.

Administered by CCSE for the California Air Resources Board, the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) offers up to $2,500 in electric vehicle rebates for the purchase or lease of new, eligible zero-emission and plug-in hybrid light-duty vehicles.

To apply for a rebate, submit a CVRP application a) within 6 months of the vehicle purchase or lease date, b) after taking possession of the vehicle, and c) prior to exhaustion of available rebate funds. You are responsible for submitting the rebate application and all required documentation to CCSE. You must also retain ownership of the vehicle in California for a minimum of 36 consecutive months immediately after the vehicle purchase or lease date.

Californians are Driving onto the Electric Vehicle Highway

California is leading the nation in clean vehicle adoption with more plug-in electric vehicles on its roadways than any other state and some 3,000 new vehicles joining them each month. This shift away from gasoline and diesel brings many environmental and economic benefits including less air pollution and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
