California Clean Fuel Reward

A Vision For An Electric Future

Electric vehicles are remarkable. They're quick and quiet, with impressive acceleration, and they get the most advanced connectivity features.

But there is something even more important. They are climate friendly. Over their lifetime, they cause far fewer harmful emissions than traditional cars and trucks.

That's why California is committed to putting millions of EVs on our roads by 2030. It's all about reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality, and moving toward carbon neutrality so we can address the climate emergency. With extreme weather, rising sea levels and severe fires impacting our state, it's easy for Californians to see that climate change is real.

The California Air Resources Board and your electric utility are supporting this effort by offering the California Clean Fuel Reward. The purpose of this clean vehicle reward is to make EVs affordable for a wider range of people.

If you already drive an electric vehicle, we thank you. If you don't, we hope you'll consider buying or leasing a new Hyundai EV. We want you to become part of a cleaner, quieter, more electric future.

Battery Electric (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) light-duty vehicles with a battery capacity of 5 kWh or greater are eligible for the California Clean Fuel Reward.

Additional EV Benefits

More incentives, rewards, rebates, and EV tax credits are available to people who purchase or lease qualifying Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicles, including utility discounts on chargers and electricity rates. 
Additional incentives could be available in your ZIP code. See a list at DriveCleanElectric for All, and PlugStar.
EV Charging

You may have heard about range anxiety, the fear that your electric vehicle won't get you to your destination. That isn't a problem for Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicles-you just visit a gas station. And it's not much of a problem for Battery Electric (BEV) vehicles, either. On average, Americans drive less than 30 miles a day, well within the range of an EV. And the decision of where and when to charge the vehicle-either at home or at a public EV charging station-is getting easier every day.

Many electric vehicles are charged only at home. Connecting to a standard household electrical outlet is practical for charging any EV when time is not a factor. But many EV drivers may want to install a Level 2-240-volt AC charger to increase charging speed. 
Level 2 charging stations should be installed by a professional EV charger installer. Many local governments and utilities offer EV charger incentives and rebates for the purchase or installation of these units. 
Some utilities also offer special rates for EV charging to reduce charging costs at home. And most EVs have software that enables you to charge your vehicle when electricity rates are lowest. 

Where can you charge your vehicle away from home? There are many public options available beyond your garage's EV wall charger. Including workplaces, municipal buildings EV retailers, and businesses.
Most of these chargers are medium-speed Level 2-240-volt AC chargers. Prices for use vary. 
There are also large networks of charging stations with high speed Level 3-DC Fast chargers. Many are located near shopping and dining outlets where you can pass the time while charging.
