NYSERDA Drive Clean Rebate Program
Across the country, consumer interest in electric vehicles (EVs) is up, and sales in New York State are growing. The Drive Clean Rebate, offered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), is a point-of-sale incentive available to encourage even more New York State consumers and fleet operators to purchase EVs. The rebate gives participating car dealers the opportunity to talk to customers about considerable savings on their purchase or lease – up to $2,000. Combined with the current federal tax credit, they can save up to $9,500. 
To offer this rebate, dealers need to:

  • Enroll in the Drive Clean Rebate initiative
  • Reduce the vehicle price by the full amount of the rebate at the point-of-sale
  • Apply for reimbursement online within 60 days of vehicle delivery to the customer
  • Receive payment

As of mid-August, close to 400 New York State new car dealers have signed up to offer the Drive Clean Rebate. A live rebate tracker is available online for you to see how much funding is still available at any time. 

If your dealership sells new EVs and hasn’t yet signed up, click here to submit your enrollment application today! Once your enrollment is approved, you can start offering the rebate to your customers and then apply for reimbursement.

Things to Remember
  • The rebate is only available to New York State residents, businesses, and government entities. Individuals will need proof of residency (usually, a New York driver license).
  • See the list of Drive Clean Rebate eligible cars and rebate amounts on our website. 
  • Purchases and leases are eligible. The original lease term must be at least 36 months.
  • Vehicles must be new.
  • Rebate applications, including all required supporting documentation, need to be submitted online by dealers within 60 days of vehicle delivery.
  • See Dealer Resources to download the Implementation Manual, watch an overview webinar, view frequently asked questions, and more. 

Drive Clean Rebate staff are available to answer any questions. For information, call (866) 595-7917 or email
