The California Air Resources Board (CARB) in partnership with CALSTART launched the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) and Low NOx Engine Incentives in 2009 to accelerate the purchase of cleaner, more efficient trucks and buses in California.

The greatest barrier to purchasing cleaner trucks and buses is the higher price tag.

HVIP provides point-of-sale discounts to vehicle purchasers. There’s no waiting for a rebate check or a tax credit. HVIP works closely with truck and bus dealers to apply the voucher incentive at the time of purchase.

Why do we need cleaner trucks and buses?

Today, trucks and buses are responsible for 37 percent of California’s greenhouse gas and criteria emissions. By deploying new electric, hybrid, and natural gas trucks and buses, fleets can help reduce these emissions.

Updated Requirements for Low NOx Refuse Trucks

Purchases of new 8.9L Low NOx natural gas refuse collection and roll-off vehicles that replace existing natural gas vehicles are not eligible for voucher requests.

Purchases of new 8.9L Low NOx natural gas refuse collection and roll-off vehicles that replace existing diesel vehicles are eligible for voucher requests.

Purchases of new 8.9-L Low NOx natural gas transfer vehicles remain eligible, regardless of whether they replace a diesel vehicle or not.

Eligibility requirements for 8.9-L Low NOx vehicles that replace diesel vehicles:

  • The new Low NOx vehicle needs to be domiciled and operated within a 100-mile driving radius of the diesel vehicle it is replacing. If the replacement vehicle is more than 100 miles from the replaced vehicle, but still in the same service territory, the fleet can request an exception with a letter detailing the new vehicle’s service territory.
  • Proof of California vehicle registration, active at time of voucher request, is required for the diesel vehicle that is being replaced. There is no requirement to substantiate that the diesel vehicle has been replaced. Each diesel vehicle can only count once as a replaced vehicle. The fleet shall also identify the domicile location of each replaced diesel vehicle. The replaced diesel vehicle needs to be a collection or roll-off vehicle.
