The Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate Program provides incentives for Delawareans to buy or lease new electric vehicles. The vehicle rebate program encourages the deployment of electric vehicles as part of Delaware’s commitment to innovation in the transportation sector, reducing greenhouse gases and improving the state’s air quality.
The Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate is not a tax credit. It is a cash rebate for vehicles purchased or leased between May 1, 2023 and May 1, 2024. The rebate must be applied for within 90 days of the purchase date.
The rebate program is for purchase of the following types of electric vehicles:
|Type of Vehicle||Rebate Amounts|
|New Battery Electric||$2,500|
|New Plug-in Hybrid Electric||$1,000|
*Note: Vehicles must have a base MSRP of $50,000 or less to qualify for a rebate. Check the Eligible Vehicle List to see which vehicles qualify.
Starting May 1, 2023, individuals may not receive more than 2 rebates over the lifetime of the program. Businesses, non-profit organizations, governments, educational institutions, and other eligible entities may not receive more than 6 rebates over the lifetime of the program.
