Electric vehicles are a great option for families, commuters, and business fleets. Cheaper to fuel and cleaner for the environment than gas cars, they're better for your wallet and our air. Learn about money-back offers for purchasing yours rebates are available up to $3,500 from the state, and others may be available from manufacturers. Along with propane and natural gas vehicles, electric vehicles are considered "alternative fuel vehicles" because they run on something other than gasoline.

Employers that install workplace charging stations set an example of environmental and social responsibility to their employees, partners, and competitors. Workplace charging makes it possible for commuting employees to drive electric, and opens up opportunities for electric fleet vehicles, which are cheaper to fuel and maintain than gas vehicles. Participating workplaces are eligible for multiple rebates of 75 percent of the cost of charging equipment, up to $5,000 per rebate. Technical guidance and resources are also available.

Vehicles in all shapes and sizes from sedans and pick-up trucks to school buses and heavy-duty big rigs can be designed or converted to run on natural gas or propane  fuels that offer lower, steadier prices and fewer polluting emissions than gasoline. Along with electric vehicles, propane and natural gas vehicles are considered "alternative fuel vehicles" because they run on something other than gasoline. Bi-fuel vehicles are equipped to run on gasoline or diesel, and natural gas or propane.

As a result of the settlement for this case, Volkswagen has agreed to several programs for cleaner transportation, including vehicle buy backs, investing money into zero emission vehicles and infrastructure, and providing funds to states for projects that reduce NOx emissions.
