When you decide on a hybrid car or SUV, you’ll want to take advantage of clean vehicle incentives. For San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland, California motorists, this serves as another benefit of buying one. Before you start your hybrid-buying journey, you’ll want to find out more, so San Jose Mitsubishi gathered all the facts in one simple guide.
You may receive up to $7,000 back after you purchase or lease an eligible vehicle. It all depends on the vehicle, battery size, where you live in the Bay Area, your household income, and other factors. What have you got to lose?
Make sure you apply within three months of purchasing or leasing your vehicle. Read the application guidelines carefully in case one program requires additional information. Your car must be on the list for eligibility as well. Check each program to ensure that the vehicle you’re driving may qualify. Some programs may differ in their requirements.
You likely already know the advantages that stem from buying your electric or hybrid vehicle. Let’s go over the perks in case you’re on the fence about going electric or simply do not know what they are.
Beyond getting a rebate, you can get a federal tax credit and lower the expenses you accrued in fueling up at the gas station. Depending on where you’re driving, city or highway, you could save nearly $400 per year on fuel. You’ll never be responsible for remembering to schedule an oil change or paying for one at a service center.
Your car will not emit any carbon emissions and shrink your footprint on Mother Earth. That should make you feel great and free to breathe in fresh, pure air. Since you bought this amazing vehicle, you may even be eligible to ride in the HOV lane with decals from the California Department of Motor Vehicles tacked onto your car.
Clean vehicle incentives may encourage you to take the plunge and purchase the electric or hybrid car you’ve been eying. The future is clean energy for many San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland drivers, so jump in and enjoy the benefits.
