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 :

How Many Used Vehicles With Open Recalls is Your Dealership Being Forced to Hold in Inventory?
NYSADA would like to get an estimate of how many used vehicles each dealership is being forced to hold in their inventory and pay for due to an open recall. The vehicles in question could be stop-sale vehicles or vehicles that your manufacturer has forced your dealership to hold onto or suffer the consequences. An example of this would be that GM is instructing their dealers that they are not allowed to sell a used 2013 Chevrolet Equinox that has an open recall due to the windshield wiper motor. However, the Ford dealership down the street could take the same vehicle in trade and turn around and sell it the same day. NYSADA is trying to identify the depth of this problem.

Currently, there is no law that requires manufacturers to pay dealers for used vehicles that have open recalls and can’t be sold due to manufacturer restrictions. There is a federal requirement that manufacturers must pay their dealers 1% of the value of a new vehicle per month with an open recall. Of course, federal law does not allow a new vehicle with an open recall to be sold until the open recall is repaired. To help the Association understand how large the used vehicle problem is, we have enclosed in this edition of The News a short dealer survey that allows dealerships to list the number of vehicles that they have that fall under this category. Please take the time to fill out this survey and fax it back to the Association at (518) 432-1309 or email it to
