On March 15, 2022, Tesla increased the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of the Model 3 and Model Y which places these vehicles over the CVRP MSRP cap. CVRP-eligible Cars (per EPA Vehicle Class) have a maximum manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $45,000*. CVRP-eligible SUVs, trucks, and vans (per EPA Vehicle Class) have a maximum manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $60,000.

Based on CVRP vehicle eligibility requirements, any Tesla Model 3 or Model Y that was ordered on or after March 16, 2022, is not eligible for a CVRP rebate.

Consumers who ordered a Tesla Model 3 or Tesla Model Y on or before March 15, 2022 are still eligible for a rebate if you meet all other  eligibility requirements. To be eligible, you must submit a CVRP application after delivery and within three months of the date of first registration.
