HVIP Overview
HVIP aids the introduction of hybrid and electric trucks and buses by reducing the purchase price of these vehicles in California. HVIP works through a series of Authorized Dealers through which all fleets may purchase vehicles. All fleets are eligible for HVIP funding on a per-vehicle basis, detailed in the tables below. Interested fleets should visit the "For Fleets" page to learn more.   

E-Truck and Bus Voucher Amounts
Base vouchers can cover up to $110,000 toward the purchase of any zero-emission truck or bus in the HVIP! Please see the table below (Table 2 on page 12 of the HVIP Implementation Manual).

Disadvantaged communities are identified as areas within the top 20 percent in the CalEnviroScreen 2.0 census tool. Click here for the Disadvantaged Communities map, enter the vehicle domicile address, and left-click on the result to see if your electric truck vouchers are eligible for the additional funding detailed in the table above. Hybrid vehicles are not eligible for the additional disadvantaged community funding.
