How To Claim Hybrid Rebates The Easy Way

Hybrid cars are powered by an electric motor and a combustion engine. Despite the growing popularity of hybrid vehicles, many people are yet to use them. Several US states offer hybrid rebates to their residents as part of efforts to promote greener earth.

It makes sense to buy hybrid cars with rebates because it saves money and reduces carbon emissions. But most people either don't know how to complete the claim process or don't have time to mail in the rebate forms.

Let's take a look at the hybrid rebates program and how DoNotPay can help you claim it.

What Is Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEVs) Rebate?

PHEVs are hybrid cars with rechargeable batteries and zero-emission range capability. These are vehicles that work on both electricity and gasoline but can travel 30 miles on electricity alone. So, you enjoy a rebate for the lease or purchase of these vehicles. If you're resident in California, you can check the clean vehicle rebate page for the list of eligible hybrid cars.

How Do Hybrid Rebates Work?

Several states offer rebates when you buy or lease a hybrid car. What you receive depends on the State. But you can get from $500 to $5000 depending on your income eligibility.

Is There a Deadline to Apply for a Rebate?

Yes. You start the claim process within six months of buying or leasing a hybrid car. If you got the car from an original manufacturer, then the date of first registration is taken as the purchase or lease date. The post-mark date determines the eligibility for applications made through the mail.

Once your application goes through, you will get an email response and the further steps to follow. After completing your application review, you will receive another email stating your eligibility. The email notification will declare whether your application is approved, incomplete, or you're ineligible.

Sometimes funds may not be available at the time of your application. If so, you can reapply, but you will be placed on the waitlist. You will get your due rebate amount when you apply if funds are available. Once you meet the requirements and submit the correct documents, you will get your hybrid rebate money.
