If You Sell Electric Vehicles (EVs)
Please Sign Up ASAP for New Incentive Program 

March 22, 2017

Following NYSADA Board Meeting with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul Announces Electric Vehicle Incentive Program In close cooperation with NYSADA and coordinated in association with the scheduling of both NYSADA's Legislative Committee Meeting and Board Meeting, Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul announced the implementation of the New York State Electric Vehicle (EV) Incentive Program yesterday, Tuesday, March 21 at an 11 am press conference at the Albany City Convention Center.

Since the previous week NYSADA had been in ongoing contact with the Governor's staff to make this event a reality. Since the incentive monies were allocated as part of last year's budget, there had been considerable interest and concern on the part of NYSADA as well as EV manufacturer's about when and how the State would officially implement a specific program providing for the incentives. Making this concern all the more acute is that New York State is under a specific Zero Emission Vehicle Mandate requiring that beginning with the 2018 model year, 4 - 5% be either Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) or Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles.

It was at a "legislative" breakfast for NYSADA's Board of Directors, hosted by Governor Cuomo, yesterday morning (3/21) that he actually made the official announcement concerning this new program and personally invited the NYSADA Board to attend the kick-off press event scheduled for 11 am that same morning.

This new program offers a "point of sale" rebate to customers purchasing or leasing an electric vehicle that ranges from $500 to $2000 depending on the amount of electric range associated with the particular vehicle being purchased or leased.

The program is only open to New York State franchised new car dealers. In addition the consumer or business leasing or purchasing a vehicle must be a resident of New York State. To sign up for the program and for other program specifics go to :
