The higher cost of zero-emission vehicles can make it more difficult to adopt this clean technology. A zero-emission vehicle is a vehicle that has the potential to produce no tailpipe emissions. They can still have a conventional internal combustion engine, but must also be able to operate without using it.
The Incentives for Zero-Emissions Vehicles Program (iZEV) offers funding up to $5,000 to purchase or lease a zero-emissions vehicle. The program also provides testing and research, safety on automated and connected vehicles and zero-emission vehicles to help reduce the barriers of making the switch to help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from gas cars and light trucks.
Battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, and longer range plug-in hybrid vehicles are eligible for an incentive of $5,000.
Shorter range plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are eligible for an incentive of $2,500.
