DEQ has established agreements with interested dealerships to provide “cash on the hood,” Standard rebates for anyone purchasing or leasing a new electric vehicle. Cash on the hood means the dealer will subtract the electric vehicle rebate from the price of the vehicle at the time of purchase. With the cash on the hood option, the dealer submits for the rebate instead of having the buyer wait to receive the rebate.
DEQ has selected a contractor to manage application processing of both Standard and Charge Ahead rebates. Please note that the Charge Ahead rebate will require a Charge Ahead applicant to submit additional,information in order to verify income eligibility. We anticipate that the selected contractor will be issuing Charge Ahead rebates to approved, 2018 Charge Ahead applicants later in 2019.
