Technology Types

HVIP offers incentives for eligible zero-emission and hybrid trucks and buses; vehicles using engines that meet the optional low-NOx engine standard in California; and vehicles using eligible ePTO technologies.

ePTO (electric Power Take-Off) – Refers to a device that takes power from an on-vehicle source (like a battery) and produces no emissions and which is used to power an aerial boom. Work vehicles with ePTO are deemed HVIP-eligible by CARB based on a demonstration that the vehicle engine does not idle to recharge the battery or to power the truck mounted hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric work equipment utilized for performing stationary work in a typical work day.

Hybrid – Refers to any vehicle that can draw propulsion energy from both consumable fuel and a rechargeable energy storage system. A hybrid vehicle conversion must draw propulsion energy from onboard sources of stored energy that are both an internal combustion or heat engine using consumable fuel, and a rechargeable energy storage system. This definition does not exclude plug-in hybrid vehicles. A hybrid vehicle conversion must achieve at least a 20 percent fuel economy or reduction of GHGs relative to its equivalent baseline vehicle.

Zero-Emission –  Refers to any vehicle that produces no emissions when stationary or operating. Hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric-powered vehicle technologies have been proven to emit zero emissions when powering medium and heavy-duty vehicles and therefore are eligible for HVIP. Other technologies which emit zero-emissions when in operation may be considered for HVIP eligibility on a case-by-case basis.

Low-NOx Engine – Refers to any approved engine or vehicle that is powered by an engine certified to a 0.02 g/bhp-hr NOx standard, which is 90 percent below the current NOx standard. As of Oct. 26, 2018 transit buses equipped with 8.9L Low-NOx engines are no longer eligible for HVIP funding. Vouchers for refuse vehicles equipped with 8.9L Low-NOx engines will be issued only if the fleet is replacing a diesel refuse vehicle.
