Over 5,750 electric-car buyers have benefitted from NY’s ‘Drive Clean Rebate’ program
In a recent announcement, New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has revealed that the ‘Drive Clean Rebate’ program launched by the State in 2017 has thus far benefitted more than 5,750 consumers.
The ‘Drive Clean Rebate’ program was launched to encourage consumers in New York to purchase or lease new electric cars, while receiving a rebate of up to $2,000 from participating dealers. The program underscores an initiative by Governor Cuomo towards achieving a targeted 40 percent reduction in green house emissions in the State by 2030.
Under the program, all the 62 counties across New York State have approved rebates for consumers on the purchase or lease of new electric cars. Consumers in Long Island submitted nearly 32 percent of the approved rebates; followed by consumers in Mid-Hudson Valley.
On the whole, a minimum rebate of at least $1,100 was received by most of the consumers while purchasing or leasing new electric cars. The popular car models which were purchased/leased by consumers to benefit from the program included Toyota Prius Prime, Chevrolet Bolt EV, Chevrolet Volt, Ford Fusion Energi, and Kia Soul EV.
Revealing that the Drive Clean Rebate program also supports the construction of new electric charging stations, Governor Cuomo said that the administration is “furthering” its efforts “to become a cleaner, greener Empire State for all.”
