Clean Vehicle Rebate Project

This page last updated January 20, 2015

The Air Resources Board (ARB) Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) is designed to promote the purchase of battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell vehicles.  Rebates of up to $5,000 per light-duty vehicle are available for individuals, nonprofits, government entities, and business owners who purchase or lease an eligible vehicle. Approximately 90,000 rebates have been issued to date, totaling about $190 million.

The California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) approved the transfer of $8 million to CVRP to augment funding freeway capable ZEVs certified for four or more passengers, bringing the Energy Commission's contribution to the fiscal year 2013-14 program to $12.5 million.

To apply for a rebate, check the status of your rebate, or to get more information regarding CVRP, please visit CVRP's website at or call 866-984-2532.
