It didn’t happen in time for the holidays as we were hoping it would, but just after the New Year, the Massachusetts legislature passed its supplemental budget. One of the items in the supplemental budget is $27 million in 2020 funding for the MOR-EV rebate program (Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicle), along with another $27 million in 2021.
In 2018 and 2019 alone, 134 Needham residents earned $264,000 in rebates when they bought EVs or plug-in hybrids.
- Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) with a sales price under $50,000 are eligible for a $2,500 rebate.
- Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) with a sales price under $50,000 and an all-electric range of 25+ miles are eligible for a $1,500 rebate.
