A partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and electric utility companies makes the California Clean Fuel Award possible. The price cut on qualifying new battery-electric and plug-in hybrid cars would be introduced under the provisions of the incentive. Buyers who want to purchase or lease new cars are entitled to receive the offer. Within California, no wage or location limitations come with the incentive, but the car that is bought or rented must be licensed in the State of California.

The Board of Air Management of California and your energy provider intend to make buying an EV simpler. That’s why we deliver the California Clean Fuel Incentive to individuals at participating automotive retailers who buy or lease an eligible* new Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) car. This is on top of all federal, state, and local grants, rebates, and tax credits available,’ wrote the CARB.

What is quite fascinating about the Clean Fuel Award is that all available federal, state, and municipal grants, rebates, and tax credits will be applied on top of it. Depending on the bought or leased vehicle’s battery capacity, estimated in kWh, the reward is often given on a sliding scale. Vehicles with 16 kWh or greater battery power qualify for the $1,500 maximum incentive.

Tesla’s Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y qualify for the full $1,500 incentive, due to their big batteries. It should also be remembered that the Clean Fuel Incentive would not replace the Clean Diesel Rebate Scheme for California (CVRP), which is also open to qualifying customers and companies. The California Clean Fuel Award could be paired with the CVRP rebates, as noted on the incentive’s official website.
