WORCESTER — In hopes of furthering the state’s emissions goals, Gov. Deval Patrick announced a new rebate program Thursday to encourage sales of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles.

The rebates, worth up to $2,500, are funded through $2 million raised in an auction for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

“Anything that makes a purchase less expensive helps,” said John O’Dell, senior editor and green car guru at, a car-shopping website that tracks trends in the industry. “Electric (vehicles) aren’t selling as well as some hoped they would.”
