It’s a Great Time to Get an Electric Car in New York State

Not only are electric cars cleaner, but they offer a cutting-edge driving experience, save money on fuel, and need less maintenance than gas or diesel cars. The Drive Clean Rebate offers electric vehicle (EV) buyers up to $2,000 off the purchase or lease of 60+ new EV models. Combine that with an Inflation Reduction Act tax credit of up to $7,500, and it’s an opportunity you wouldn’t want to miss. If you are a New York State resident, business, or government entity looking for a new car, it’s a great time to buy or lease a plug-in hybrid or battery-powered car that qualifies for the Drive Clean Rebate.

How the Rebate Works

Find your favorite plug-in hybrid or battery-powered car
Go to the nearest participating dealer and test drive the electric car you like
Get up to $2,000 off your electric car purchase

With more than 60 electric car models to choose from, an ever-expanding fueling network of thousands of public charging stations across New York State, and a point-of-sale rebate on your new car purchase or lease, there’s no better time than now to go electric.

Charging EVs Forward

New York State’s Charge NY initiative is helping to get more electric cars and trucks on the road by supporting the installation of charging stations and offering the Drive Clean Rebate for the purchase of new electric cars . Whether you’re a consumer, business, municipality, or fleet operator, Charge NY has resources to help get started on your electric vehicle journey.
