Used vehicles must be no more than eight years old and applicants must live in the San Joaquin Valley or South Coast air basins. Eligible replacement vehicles must meet a minimum fuel economy average by model year or average at least 35 miles per gallon (mpg). Alternative fuel vehicles are also eligible, including hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), all-electric electric vehicles (EVs), and fuel cell electic vehicles (FCEVs). Funding for alternative transportation mobility options, such as public transportation or car sharing, is also available in lieu of purchasing another vehicle. The incentive amounts vary by income level as compared to the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and replacement vehicle type. All eligible applicants must have a household income that is at or below 400% of the FPL. Incentive amounts are available in the following amounts
