Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program

Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program logo

The Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program (OCVRP) offers rebates for Oregon drivers who purchase or lease electric vehicles. It is not a tax credit. DEQ designed the Program to reduce vehicle emissions by encouraging the purchase or lease electric vehicles instead of gas vehicles. Eligibility requirements differ depending on which rebate you apply for.

Funding for OCVRP has been exhausted, but applications for eligible vehicles purchased or leased prior to May 1, 2023 are still being accepted and placed on a rebate waitlist. Applicants have six months from their date of purchase or lease to apply for a rebate.

At this time, we anticipate reopening in March 2024, when funding is replenished. The OCVRP website will be updated when the program receives funding, so please continue to check the website homepage for program updates.
