About

California’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) plays a crucial role in the deployment of zero-emission and near-zero-emission technologies. HVIP accelerates commercialization by providing point-of-sale vouchers to make advanced vehicles more affordable. Launched by the California Air Resources Board in 2009, the project is part of California Climate Investments. HVIP is the earliest model in the U.S. to demonstrate the function, flexibility, and effectiveness of first-come first-served incentives that reduce the incremental cost of commercial vehicles.

The Dealer Training Guide, Implementation Manual and VPC Training Video do a great job in providing all the information needed ... Thanks for the attention to detail in preparing this for us!

This program helps clean our air and address climate change, which is so critical, especially for our region.

The reason why I would want to switch over to electric is to better my kids' future with less smog in the air. We all know how bad the smog is, especially in California & I feel like making the switch could definitely help reduce this.
