Use our Savings Calculator to determine which incentives are available for the purchase or lease of your clean vehicle. Incentives are based on household income, where you live and the type of vehicle purchased or leased.
Federal Tax Credit
Federal tax credits of up to $7,500 are available for eligible plug-in electric vehicles. The amount of the tax credit varies depending on the EV battery size. Learn more about the federal tax credit and talk to your tax professional about how to apply for the credit.
High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane Access
Another benefit of owning or leasing an EV is that EVs qualify for a Clean Air Vehicle (CAV) decal. This decal allows access to HOV lanes even when you are the only person in the vehicle. Gain access to the HOV lane as a single driver when you drive electric.

Many California utilities offer special reduced “time-of-use” rates for electric vehicle charging at home when electrical grid demand is lower. In addition, some utilities provide rebates to customers who purchase or lease an EV. Check your local utility’s website for more information.
