You may already be aware of the federal tax credits for electric vehicles (if not check out Electric Vehicle Federal Tax Credit: Explained) but there are also EV incentives available in individual states, including some great incentives for Montana residents.
If you’re a resident of the Treasure State you may qualify for tax credits, incentives or savings for owning an electric vehicle and may also qualify for additional incentives such as credits on solar panel installation, discounts on home charging through your energy provider, carpool lane exemptions and more.
Check out the incentives we’ve found for the state of Montana in 2023. Please keep in mind that these may change at any time and certain conditions may apply to qualify.

Home Charger Incentives
Currently, there are no state incentives or rebates being offered by the local government, or by energy providers in Montana.
Northwestern Energy pledges to be NetZero by 2050. So, perhaps they would be willing to offer some incentives to their customers for purchasing an EV or installing EV charging stations in their homes.
Montana-Dakota Utilities is another energy provider in Montana that is not offering any EV incentives.
