CA To End Clean Vehicle Rebate To Focus On Low Income Drivers


There are those who are against the program, of course, but for weird reasons. Bill Magavern, policy director of the Coalition for Clean Air, thinks that rebates for EVs should go away entirely because they’re mainstream now.

Car buyers also may qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for some vehicles, with income restrictions of $150,000 for individuals and $300,000 for married couples filing jointly.

The CVRP started back in 2010. Over its 13 years of operation, it has given out over $1.2 billion in rebates. But as with most programs like this, it didn’t help who it was originally designed to. Strange and often confusing income limits combined with expensive EVs meant that the people who took advantage of it were often higher income individuals.

The program is being replaced by expanding an existing one that is aimed at helping low income people get into EVs:

One of California’s programs designed to get buyers into EVs is ending. Southern California’s The Daily Bulletin reports that the long-running Clean Vehicle Rebate Project is ending when it runs out of funds at the end of the year so the state can focus on low-income drivers.
