EV Incentives By US State

Plug In America has a great electric car subsidies and incentives resource on its website, but I figure a lot of people are not aware of it. It’s actually a map, and as you hover over each state, you can see a summary of financial subsidies and other incentives offered in that state. It’s definitely worth a look and a share.

Florida EV Incentives US

To make this more than a one-paragraph article, here are some of the states with the best and most interesting incentives:

Colorado

  • Up to a 75% tax credit on the cost premium of a fully electric cars (BEVs) or plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), with a max credit of $6,000.
  • Sales tax exemption

California

  • Up to $2,500 rebate for BEVs, $1,500 for PHEVs, and $900 for electric motorcycles and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs).
  • Generally, special EV rates from electric utilities.
  • Carpool lane access for BEVs. (Previously, for PHEVs as well, but the cap for them has been reached. However, that incentive may come back for new PHEVs.)

Washington

  • BEVs exempt from state’s 6.5% sales tax.
  • PHEVs exempt from state’s 0.3% motor vehicle sales tax.
  • Charging station parts and labor costs also exempt from state sales tax.

South Carolina

  • Up to $2,000 rebates for PHEVs.

Florida (since it’s my home state)

  • Carpool lane access in places for BEVs.
  • Exemption from most insurance surcharges.

North Carolina (since it’s my main after-college home state)

  • HOV lane access.
