Put Used EVs on the Road with SB 79!
Dear Plug In America Friends,
Thanks to the Zero Emissin Vehicle (ZEV) Mandate, we have more than 275,000 of these clean vehicles on the road in California today – way more EVs than any other state has on their roads. Since the vehicles are mainly leased on three year terms, California is also unique in that it technically has two EV markets: one for new vehicles, and one for used vehicles.
There are plenty of purchase incentives that exist to encourage consumers to purchase new EVs, like the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project
But what about for used EVs? The CVRP only applies to new EVs. The EFMP and Plus-Up Project does apply to used EVs, but only for certain Californians in the South Coast Air Quality Management District & San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, and is also subject to funding availability, creating a start/stop nature to the programs.
A new bill being introduced in the Senate, SB 79
The bill had a successful hearing in the CA Senate Government and Finance Committee, and moves on to the Senate Environmental Quality Committee this Wednesday, April 19th. Show your support for the used EV market by contacting your state Senator now at the link below. Support SB 79 today!
