Electric Vehicle Incentives

EV Incentives – Updates for 2023

With recent federal legislation, the electric vehicle incentives are changing. The good news is that the changes are helping to spur the transition to clean transportation. Depending upon where you live and your household income, EV incentives may include federal tax credits for EVs and home charging, a state rebate, and rebates from your utility or local electricity provider.

Purchase/Finance a New EV

Right now, qualified buyers may receive the full $7,500 federal tax credit on select EV models. Effective April 18, the IRS will add new requirements which may result in reduced tax credits on some vehicles.

Lease a New EV

When you lease a new EV, the dealer may pass along the $7,500 credit to you. Many vehicles may qualify and there are no income restrictions. Verify with the dealer if they will pass on the credit when you lease an EV.

Purchase/Finance a Previously Owned EV

If you buy a qualified used EV from a licensed dealer for $25,000 or less, you may be eligible for the Used Clean Vehicle Credit.

The credit equals 30% percent of the sale price up to a maximum credit of $4,000. The credit is claimed against your tax liability the year you take delivery.
