Electric Car Rebates and Incentives: What To Know by State

If you own an electric car or want to purchase one soon, you’ll need to know what EV incentives exist that can help you defray costs. Many states offer rebates and tax deductions to make the transition to electric vehicles more attractive, like electricity discounts or bill credits. These bonuses can also apply to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), fuel cell electric vehicles, electric motorcycles, and more.

This article will outline the incentives available in each state. Because state incentives continue to evolve, we plan to update as new information becomes available. See our story on federal incentives to find out about those.
