Connecticut Hydrogen and Electric Auto Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR)


As part of Governor Malloy's efforts to provide cleaner, cheaper and more reliable transportation energy and to support our clean air goals, EVConnecticut is excited to announce an incentive pilot program – the Connecticut Hydrogen and Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR). This program will increase the number of clean vehicles on our roads by offering Connecticut drivers up to $5,000 towards the purchase or lease of a new, eligible electric vehicle!

For a limited time , EVConnecticut is offering an incentive of up to $5,000 for Connecticut residents3 who purchase or lease a new, eligible electric vehicle from a licensed Connecticut franchised new automobile dealer4 . The CHEAPR program is able to process rebate applications from individual consumers who purchase or lease an eligible vehicle directly from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) that does not have licensed franchised new automobile dealers in Connecticut (e.g., Tesla).

This incentive applies to the following kinds of vehicles:
 Battery electric vehicles
 Fuel cell electric vehicles
 Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles

The CHEAPR program has limited funds, so it’s important to check often to make sure funds are still available.
