New increased HVIP voucher amounts for electric trucks and buses
August 1, 2014: You can now receive vouchers up to $110,000 toward the purchase of any zero-emission truck or bus in the HVIP! The California Air Resources has recently increased the voucher levels for electric trucks. Please see the table below (Table 2 on page 12 of the HVIP Implementation Manual). Hybrid truck voucher amounts will remain at their previous levels.
Disadvantaged communities are identified as the top 20 percent scorers in the CalEnviroScreen 2.0 census tool. Click here for the Disadvantaged Communities map, enter the vehicle domicile address, and left-click on the result to see if your electric truck vouchers are eligible for the additional funding detailed in the table above. Hybrid vehicles are not eligible for the additional disadvantaged community funding.
For more details on the HVIP program changes, or how to request vouchers for both hybrid and zero-emission trucks and buses, please see the updated HVIP Implementation Manual.
