States encourage EV ownership
Connecticut EV buyers will for the first time qualify for rebates up to $3,000. Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell and Toyota Mirai will also qualify for the maximum rebate. Hybrids or EVs with a seven to eighteen kilowatt hour battery qualify for $1,500, while smaller battery hybrids are eligible for $750.
Tennessee, which previously offered an electric vehicle (EV) rebate, is reinstating the program until their funds are depleted. When discontinued in 2013 the state had $682,000 remaining. The program will restart in June and continue until the funds are gone. Battery electric vehicles will be eligible for up to $2,500 and hybrid vehicle buyers will qualify for up to $1,500.
Both programs are applied for through the vehicle dealership at time of purchase.
