Three quarters of US states offer an EV incentive to people who buy a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, electric, or fuel cell car. Despite its overall progressive stance, New York was not one of those states until recently. Starting April 1, New Yorkers will finally be eligible for a rebate of up to $2,000 when they buy an EV. The program was approved last year. At the time, April 1 was set as the latest the incentives could go into effect. Government being what it is, the state decided to wait until the very last day to offer the EV incentive.
