The California Clean Fuel Reward is a benefit available to anyone who lives in California. Customers who purchase a clean fuel vehicle may be eligible for special incentives, rewards and other rebates as well as EV tax credits. They can choose a Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) to qualify. Some of these incentives and rebates are available for leasing as well as buying.
Each program has its own eligibility criteria, which you can find at https://drveclean.ca.gov/. This includes Clean Cars For All (CCFA), Clean Vehicle Assistance Program (CVAP), and others.
The most obvious benefit of buying an electric vehicle over a traditional fuel model is how it helps the environment. Reducing your carbon footprint is good for all of nature. However, this noble reason isn’t the only one for buying EV. Thanks to modern technology, electric vehicles have fewer maintenance issues, which means decreased costs for the owner. You’ll save money over time with all the fuel savings you will enjoy. Studies show that the cost of ownership for an EV model is less than for a vehicle with a combustion engine.
Something to consider is the overall health improvement in driving an EV. PHEV models have fewer emissions while the battery electric has none. This translates into less smog and pollution. These models are also quieter on the road, proving a more relaxing drive. At the same time, you don’t have to worry about keeping up with traffic. Electric vehicles accelerate quickly when getting onto the highway or passing another vehicle. Their design makes them fun to drive.
California wants to encourage people to buy EV models, which is why some carpool lanes offer free access for these vehicles no matter how many passengers you have. One of the concerns many buyers have is being able to get where they need to go. The number of charging stations have increased in recent years even as technology has improved to regenerate energy to maintain a charge. You can find maps which show where charging stations are located and many of the vehicle apps include this information on your smartphone. One of the best resources is PlugIn America with its overall charging map.
In the past, many buyers were concerned about battery life. It was expensive and challenging to replace the battery. However, today’s batteries are designed to last longer. They come with a full warranty, which is designed to give you peace of mind.
