Federal Tax Credits for Used All-Electric, Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles and Fuel Cell Vehicles

Pre-owned all-electric, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell electric cars purchased on or after January 1, 2023, may be eligible for a federal income tax credit. The credit equals 30% percent of the sale price up to a maximum credit of $4,000.

The credit is nonrefundable, so you can't get back more on the credit than you owe in taxes. Also, you can't apply any excess credit to future tax years.

Eligible Used Vehicles

Rebate+ Used qualifying individuals1 are eligible to receive a rebate for the purchase or lease of a used eligible vehicle from a Connecticut franchised used automobile dealer or original equipment manufacturer (i.e. Tesla). For more information, visit the Rebate+ page. In addition, some eligible vehicles may qualify the purchaser for a federal income tax credit.

Note: Rebate+ Used is both a point-of-sale (receive at dealership) and a post-purchase rebate.

The CHEAPR program is able to process rebate applications from individual consumers who purchase or lease an eligible vehicle directly from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) that does not have licensed franchised new automobile dealers in Connecticut (e.g., Tesla). However, when such vehicles are authorized for sale or lease within Connecticut, applicants will be required to purchase or lease such vehicles from retail locations located within the state in order to be eligible for the CHEAPR program.
