ZEV and the federal government provide several ways to reduce the cost of ownership for your ZEV. Check below for details.
FEDERAL REBATE PROGRAMS
For the USA the price of your ZEV can be substantially reduced by tax credits and deductions.
A Federal Tax Rebate is in effect for 2016 for 10% of the purchase price of all ZEV models.
A credit is available for the purchase of a new qualified two-wheeled plug-in electric drive vehicle that draws propulsion using a traction battery that has at least 2.5 kilowatt hours (kWh) of capacity, uses an external source of energy to recharge the battery, has a gross vehicle weight rating of up to 14,000 pounds, is manufactured primarily for use on public roadways, and can drive at least 45 miles per hour. The credit is for 10% of the cost of the qualified vehicle, up to $2,500, and applies to vehicles acquired between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2016
