Did you know you can get a rebate for the purchase of new electric and hybrid vehicles such as Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus, Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius plug-in and Ford C-Max Energi?
The Department of Environmental Protection announced that the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate program will be extended by an additional $1.5 million in rebates for large-battery system plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and battery-electric vehicles.
Large-battery vehicles that have battery system capacity equal or greater than 10 kilo-watt hours (kWh), including models such as the Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus and Chevy Volt, are eligible for the highest rebate amount. DEP also offers rebates of $1,000 for large-battery system plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and battery-electric vehicles with battery system capacity less than 10 kWh, including models such as the Toyota Prius plug-in and Ford C-Max Energi.
Rebates of $1,000 are offered for natural gas, propane, hydrogen or fuel-cell vehicles. A $500 rebate is available for electric motorcycles and scooters.
Rebate applications and updated guidelines are available on DEP's website at www.dep.state.pa.us, keyword: Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebates. Information on rebate availability will be updated weekly.
