The Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate Program

The Clean Vehicle Rebate Program provides incentives for Delawareans and Delaware businesses to buy or lease new battery electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles.

The vehicle rebate program encourages the deployment of battery electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles as part of Delaware’s commitment to innovation in the transportation sector, reducing greenhouse gases and improving Delaware’s air quality. 

The Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate is not a tax credit. It is a cash rebate for vehicles purchased or leased after May 1, 2023. The rebate must be applied for within 90 days of the purchase date. 

Applications for vehicles purchased before May 1, 2023 are no longer accepted.
