California Clean Fuel Reward Program

California Clean Fuel Reward Program

Thanks to the The California Air Resources Board and California electric utility providers, there are more reasons than ever to choose an EV as your next vehicle in Valencia! The California Clean Fuel Reward awards a reward of up to $1,500 to drivers who purchase an eligible new Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicle from a participating retailer. You can take advantage of the The California Clean Fuel Reward in addition to other applicable perks, including:

  • Federal, state, and local incentives
  • Rebates and tax credits


How Do I Receive the California Clean Fuel Reward?

Funded by utilities participating in the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), the California Clean Fuel Reward is available to all California residents regardless of their electricity provider. It’s simple: your retailer will include the reward in the sales transaction when you purchase your new BEV or PHEV vehicle, and you’ll be asked to sign the Program Customer Agreement. Here’s what you need to know about qualifying for the California Clean Fuel Reward:

  • You must drive either a Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicle.
  • Your vehicle must have a battery capacity of 5 kWh or greater.
  • The California Clean Fuel Reward is offered on a sliding scale up to $1,500.
  • Your reward amount depends on your BEV or PHEV battery size.
  • You must purchase your vehicle at a participating retailer like Kia of Valencia. Find us near San Fernando and Sylmar!

  • Significant health benefits from cleaner air, particularly in high-density areas.
  • Low maintenance compared to traditional internal combustion engines – and zero oil changes!
  • Free access to many California carpool lanes, regardless of the number of passengers.
