Plug-In Hybrid and Zero Emission Light-Duty Public Fleet Vehicle Fleet Rebates

The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) offers rebates to eligible state and local public entities for the purchase of qualified light-duty fleet vehicles. Public fleets located in disadvantaged communities are eligible for increased incentives. Rebates are available in the following amounts:

Technology Standard Rebate Increased Rebate
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle $4,500 $7,000
All-Electric Vehicle $2,000 $7,500
Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle $1,000 $6,500

Eligible vehicles must be certified by the California Air Resources Board (ARB). Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Manufacturers must apply to ARB to have their vehicles considered for rebate eligibility. Each entity may receive up to 30 rebates annually and may not receive CVRP incentives for the same vehicle. For more information, including a list of eligible vehicles, locations, and entities, see the CVRP website.
