Electric Car Incentives by State in 2023

The US government has set ambitious targets for electric vehicle (EV) adoption to meet its carbon emissions reduction targets and spur economic growth. Drivers can receive a federal rebate for electric cars of up to $7,500 when they purchase an EV until 2032.

In addition to federal incentives for electric cars, most states offer some form of rebate, discount, or tax credit for buying an EV. Some local utilities also provide incentives such as preferential power rates.

What About Federal Government Incentives?

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 extended the federal clean vehicle tax credit from 2022 until 2032 and introduced changes including manufacturing requirements, eligibility for certain types of vehicles, and income thresholds.

For the 2022-2023 tax year, drivers can receive a tax credit ranging from $2,500 to $7,500 for new EVs, depending on the battery capacity. The used vehicle credit is limited to 30% of the sale price, up to $4,000.

Other Electric Vehicle Incentives You May Qualify For

In addition to federal, state, and utility rebates, you might also be able to receive discounts on EV charging from local charging stations and vehicle manufacturers.

Manufacturers often provide sales incentives to reduce their inventories, which can take the form of a cash-back rebate or a reduced-rate deal on financing with as little as 0% interest. Deals tend to be the most generous at the end of a model year. Deals often vary by region in response to local supply and demand.

Check the websites for vehicle manufacturers to find the latest offers in your area.

Governments and utilities can change their program incentives over time, so it is important to check the latest information before you buy or lease an EV.
