Types of Eligible Vehicles

Announcement: Applications submitted after September 14, 2020 will not be able to select a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) as a replacement vehicle.

 

Clean Cars for All offers the option to purchase or lease the following types of vehicles to replace your old vehicle:

  • Plug-in Hybrid
     
    Gas
     
    Battery
     
    Plug-in
  • Hydrogen Fuel Cell

    Plug-in

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) combine an electric motor with a gasoline engine. PHEV batteries are recharged by the gasoline-powered motor during braking and by plugging into an outlet or charging station. PHEVs can run solely on gas or solely on the battery.

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) operate solely on their electric motor. BEV batteries are recharged by plugging into an outlet or charging station.

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) use hydrogen fuel and an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. While BEVs run on batteries that must be plugged in to recharge, FCEVs effectively have their own efficient power plant on board: the hydrogen fuel cell. Find out if there are hydrogen fueling stations near you at the Alternative Fuels website.

 

Replacement vehicles must have a sales price of $46,000 or less, and used replacement vehicles must be model year 2014 or newer and have less than 75,000 miles on their odometer. Manufacturer rebates can be counted against this vehicle price cap. For example, if a vehicle price is $48,000 and there is a $2,500 manufacturer rebate, then the vehicle is eligible for CCFA. Rebates such as the Clean Fuel Reward and California Vehicle Rebate Project are not manufacturer rebates and do not count against the vehicle cap. For more information review this Clean Vehicle Checklist. Still unsure what vehicle is right for you? Review this handout to learn more about each type of vehicle.

Examples of Eligible Vehicles

Non-eligible Vehicles

Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) combine an electric motor with a gasoline engine. These vehicles cannot be "plugged-in" to be "recharged.” The gasoline-powered motor also acts as a generator to recharge batteries on hybrids.
