Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project

This page last updated September 22, 2016

The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) provides vouchers to help California fleets purchase advanced technology trucks and buses. The State's investment in HVIP plays a crucial role in accelerating early market penetration of clean technologies with the goal of transforming the California fleet.  

HVIP provides vouchers for California purchasers and lessees of hybrid and zero-emission trucks and buses on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, HVIP provides increased incentives for zero-emission trucks and buses located in or benefitting disadvantaged communities.  Trucks and buses that are equipped or repowered with engines meeting the 0.02 g/bhp-hr optional low NOx standard are also eligible for vouchers. 

ARB has teamed with CALSTART to implement this streamlined, first-come, first-served program.  To apply for a voucher or to get more information, please visit the HVIP website at http://www.californiahvip.org/.  ARB must approve hybrid and zero-emission vehicles, low NOx engines, and new vehicles equipped with low NOx engines in order for them to become eligible for the program.

For more information regarding HVIP, please see the AQIP and Low Carbon Transportation Investments Funding Plan, HVIP Implementation Manual, or contact Ryan Murano at ryan.murano@arb.ca.gov or (916) 322-2383.
