Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Rebate Program

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) provides rebates of up to $2,000 for the purchase or lease of a new eligible PEV. An eligible vehicle must:

  • Be a four-wheeled motor vehicle manufactured for use on public streets, roads, and highways,
  • Have a gross vehicle weight rating of not more than 8,500 pounds,
  • Have a maximum speed of at least 55 miles per hour, and
  • Be propelled at least in part by an electric motor and associated power electronics that draws electricity from a hydrogen fuel cell or from a battery that has a battery capacity of at least four kilowatt-hours, and is capable of being charged from an external source of electricity.

Rebate amounts vary based on a vehicle's all-electric range and manufacturer's suggested retail price. For more information, see NYSERDA's Drive Clean Rebate website.
