CT Expands EV Subsidies
July 1, 2021—Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced Tuesday the state will offer more subsidies for purchasing and leasing electric vehicles.
The new incentives expand the Connecticut Hydrogen Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate program to include used EVs and provide additional subsidies for lower-income customers, according to the Stamford Advocate.
The program provides a cash rebate to any Connecticut resident who purchases or leases an EV costing upward of $42,000. With the new incentives, customers will receive a 50 percent bump in their rebate.
"These new and increased incentives will go a long way toward expanding the pool of consumers able to invest in an electric vehicle,” state energy department commissioner Katie Dykes said. “This is an important step in the state’s pursuit of a zero-emission transportation future that promises cleaner air and will create new jobs in Connecticut’s green economy.”
