Summary:

Applicants must apply directly to the Commonwealth for their rebate. Dealers have no required, affirmative duty in the rebate process.

Full Bulletin
Today the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in an effort together with seven other states to reduce greenhouse gas emission levels by encouraging consumers to purchase more electric-powered vehicles, launched the Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles (MOR-EV) program.
Funded by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs’ Department of Energy Resources (DOER), the MOR-EV program is part of the Multi-State Zero-Emissions Vehicle Program, which was created in October 2013 through a Memorandum of Understanding entered into by the governors of eight states (California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont.)
Starting today, Massachusetts drivers can apply for rebates of up to $2,500 for the purchase or lease of new electric vehicles, including battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, fuel cell electric vehicles, and zero-emission motorcycles. Applicants must apply for the rebate directly within three months of the completed transaction, and the approved applicants will receive their checks directly from the state. There is no action required on the part of the dealer.
Rebate amounts are based on vehicle type and are available in the following amounts:
  • $2,500 rebate for fuel cell vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles with large batteries;
  • $1,500 rebate for plug-in electric vehicle with smaller batteries; and
  • $750 rebate for electric motorcycles.
For a complete vehicle list, please visit https://mor-ev.org/eligible-vehicles-list.
In order to be eligible, applicants must meet the following requirements:
  • Purchase or lease an eligible vehicle on or after the program start date of June 18, 2014;
  • Choose a lease term of at least 36 months, where applicable; and
  • Apply for the rebate within three months of vehicle purchase or lease date.
