The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Taxation, and the Department of Motor Vehicles will convene a working group to evaluate the feasibility of an EV rebate program. The working group will:

  • Review methods for structuring and administering an EV rebate program;
  • Review funding options;
  • Evaluate vehicle sales data in states that offer EV rebates,
  • Identify metrics for evaluating an EV rebate program for incentives under $4,500, and;
  • Recommend incentives for low-income individuals.
The working group must submit a report with program recommendations to the Virginia General Assembly by November 1, 2020. The EV rebate program must be operational by December 30, 2021.
