Recent price increases have pushed the electric sedan and SUV out of the price brackets to receive the $2,000 incentive from California’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP).
According to a notice posted on the CVRP website, the Model 3 now exceeds the $45,000 limit for eligible cars, while the Model Y exceeds the $60,000 cap for SUV, trucks, and vans.
The notice explains that orders on or after March 16, 2022 are not eligible for a CVRP rebate. CarsDirect first reported the changes after confirming them with a representative from CVRP.
Canadians are all too familiar with this kind of story. Last year’s consistent price increases pushed the Model 3 Standard Range Plus, now called the Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive, over the price limit for the $5,000 iZEV federal rebate.
That will hopefully change soon as the government is reportedly considering expanding the program to include more cars, SUVs, and trucks, with a possible announcement coming with the release of the 2022 Budget next month.
