Incentives For Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicles

Alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) can cost more to purchase than a conventional car. For more than 20 years, the State of California has supported consumers who have purchased AFVs with tax credits and other financial incentives. The incentives have been offered for both the vehicles and to build the infrastructure to fuel those vehicles.

The California Energy Commission's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP) is a competitive grant program that provides as much as $100 million annually towards innovative transportation and fuel technologies that help California meet its energy, clean air, and climate-change goals.

Recent legislation extended the ARFVTP until January 1, 2024.
