Comparing the Standard and Charge Ahead Rebates

​​Rebate availability depends on program funding at the time of vehicle purchase or lease. Due to overwhelming demand and limited funding, rebates were suspended on May 1, 2023. Any vehicles purchased or leased on or after May 1, 2023 are not eligible to apply for the rebate. The program anticipates reopening in spring 2024. Low- and moderate-income households can prequalify for the $5,000 Charge Ahead rebate by completing the application now.
