In an effort to increase clean mobility adoption among its residents, California has offered rebates on electric vehicles (EVs) since 2010 as incentives for customers to make the switch from gas-powered cars. A recent article from Electrek titled “California adds $1,500 incentive for new EVs, total state + fed incentives now up to $13.5K,” explains how that enticement just got even better.
With a recent refresh of the Clean Fuel Reward Program, customers statewide can now receive up to $1,500 by purchasing from a participating retailer before January 1, 2021. The best part? No application or additional paperwork is required. Many of the previous rebates required applications needing approval prior to a customer receiving any money back. This new Clean Fuel Reward simply takes $1,500 off the purchase (or lease) price of the vehicle.
This refresh is yet another example of how California is a trend-setter in the growing future mobility market. This rebate makes EVs accessible to more customers by lowering the EV purchase price to rival the price of traditional gas-powered cars, furthering overall market adoption.
