*New Jersey residents can receive a $2,000 EV incentive and a $250 EV charger incentive. Beginning in fall 2024, income-qualifying residents can receive an additional $2,000 through the Charge Up+ incentive.

Charge Up New Jersey promotes clean vehicle adoption in the state by offering incentives of up to $4,000 for the purchase or lease of a new, eligible battery electric vehicle (EV) and up to $250 for purchasing an eligible EV charger.

Switching from gasoline and diesel use to driving electric creates significant economic and environmental benefits, including less air pollution, healthier communities, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

How Much Can I Save?

Residents can take advantage of the Charge Up New Jersey incentive directly at the car dealership or showroom and apply the incentive instantly to their purchase or lease at the point-of-sale.

You can receive a $4,000 incentive for the purchase or lease of a new eligible vehicle when combined with the Charge Up+ incentive, which opens in fall 2024.

Please note vehicles purchased or leased prior to the opening of the Charge Up+ incentive are only eligible to receive the $2,000 incentive.

You may also be eligible for a federal tax credit as high $7,500 for a new EV. For information, visit the U.S. Department of Energy website EV Tax Incentives.

Charge Up New Jersey also offers up to $250 for the purchase of a qualifying Level 2 charger through the In-Home EV Charger Incentive.

How to Claim Your Incentive

Claiming your incentive is easy! All you need to do is:

Your dealer will submit the application on your behalf and the $2,000 Charge Up incentive will be instantly applied to the purchase or lease of your new vehicle. For Charge Up+, which launches in fall 2024, you must pre-qualify for the additional $2,000 incentive prior to purchase. To find out if you qualify for the additional $2,000 Charge Up+ incentive, visit the Eligibility Guidelines page.

Check Eligibility

To claim the Charge Up+ incentive, which raises the Charge Up incentive from $2,000 to $4,000, applicants must prequalify prior to the vehicle’s sale or lease. Applicants will be required to submit their most recent tax documentation verifying that their modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) meets the following requirements:
