AQ Programs

The Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program offers a cash rebate for Oregon drivers who purchase or lease electric vehicles. It is not a tax credit. DEQ designed the program to reduce vehicle emissions by encouraging more Oregonians to purchase or lease electric vehicles rather than gas vehicles. The program contains two rebate options:

  • Standard Rebate for the purchase or lease of a new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle or a new battery electric vehicle.
  • Charge Ahead Rebate for the purchase or lease of a new or used battery electric vehicle only. Plug-in hybrids are not eligible for the Charge Ahead Rebate. To qualify for the Charge Ahead Rebate, the purchaser or lessee must be from a low- or moderate-income household. Income requirements vary by where you live in Oregon. Visit the Income Eligibility Calculator to determine if you qualify for the Charge Ahead Rebate.
