Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP)

Get up to $315,000 to purchase low-carbon clean trucks and buses!

HVIP provides point-of-sale price reductions for zero-emission and hybrid trucks and buses, ePTO systems and low NOX natural gas engines.

There’s no waiting for a rebate check, and no waiting to file a tax credit. Additional funding available to fleets located in or serving a disadvantaged community.


  •    Vouchers are available to public and private fleets (small or large)
       that operate in California.
  •    Fleets must choose an eligible vehicle and apply for a voucher
       through HVIP's vendor network available at www.californiahvip.org.
  •    Each vehicle that receives an incentive must stay in California for
       at least three years.
