The Massachusetts state EV rebate program, MOR-EV, is undergoing changes on January 1, 2019. ACT NOW to take advantage of the current rebates while they are still available.
The changes are as follows:
Only all-electric battery-only vehicles (e.g. the Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf) with an MSRP under $50,000 will be eligible for the MOR-EV rebate. This means that any plug-in hybrid vehicles (e.g. the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius Prime) and any EV over $50,000 (e.g. the Tesla Model X) will not be eligible for the rebate.
The MOR-EV rebate amount has also been reduced from a maximum of $2,500 to a maximum of $1,500.
The MOR-EV rebate program has been extended only through June 2019, so time is still a big factor regardless of whether you are planning to purchase or lease an new EV before December 31, 2018.
