Who is eligible for rebates?

Car sharing and rental fleets are eligible for up to 20 rebated vehicles per calendar year. Original lease terms must be for a minimum of 30 months, and the vehicle must remain in California and available for rent for a minimum of one year. Vehicles must also be on the CVRP list of eligible vehicles.

Are there any provisions around length of ownership?

Long-Term Ownership

Vehicles owned and operated 30 months or longer are eligible for up to $4,500 in rebates per vehicle.

Reduced Ownership Provision

Because car sharing and rental vehicles are typically circulated out of fleet operations in less than the 30-month ownership or lease period CVRP requires, a reduced ownership provision is available. Under this provision, car sharing and rental fleets are eligible for up to $1,800 in rebates per vehicle if they own and operate the vehicle for over one year and less than 30 months.

What are the electric vehicle rebate amounts?
Vehicle Type Standard Amount

Battery or range-extended electric vehicle $2,000
Plug-in hybrid electric $1,000
Zero-emission motorcycles $750

Application Process

All fleets must submit a CVRP application for each vehicle acquired.
