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 Nevada residents.
If you’re a resident of the Silver 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 Nevada in 2023. Please keep in mind that these may change at any time and certain conditions may apply to qualify.
Federal Tax Credits up to $7,500
NOTE: The Clean Vehicle Credit added a new requirement for final assembly in North America that took effect on August 17, 2022, with additional requirements beginning January 1, 2023.
Used EV Rebates up to $4,000
The Clean Vehicle Credit provides a tax credit for the purchase of a pre-owned EV or FCEV.
HOV Lane Exemptions
In Nevada, electric vehicles may use the carpool lane regardless of the number of passengers.
Home Charger Incentives
Nevada Energy offers their customers a $500 credit for the installation of a Level 2 EV charger. Not bad if you already planned on installing a home charger!
But, that’s not all… Looking to save even more money?
Nevada Energy also offers low income customers a $2,500 rebate towards the purchase of a new or used EV. To qualify for the rebate, your household income must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty line. This means that even if you don’t earn a lot of money, you could still afford an EV with this rebate. The program is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so it’s important to act fast if you’re interested.
To take advantage of this offer, visit the NV Energy Electric Vehicles website for more information.
