About California HVIP

The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Project (HVIP) makes clean vehicles more affordable for fleet operators through point-of-purchase price reductions. HVIP vouchers can be considered a type of “coupon” that fleet operators use at the time of placing their purchase order.


Who can use the funds?

Any private or public fleet operator with medium to heavy-duty vehicles operating in California. HVIP-awarded vehicles must remain in California for the next three years. Any fleet size is eligible. No vehicle scrapping necessary.


How does HVIP work?

Fleet operators should connect with their dealers today to get started on the voucher application process. If you don’t have a dealer, we can connect you with one in your area.  Contact us to get started.

$82.5M will be available at 10 am PDT on June 8, with the second half becoming available at 10 am PDT on August 10. Funding will be dispersed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fleets can receive up to $85,000 per all electric truck or bus, plus an additional 10% for vehicles located in disadvantaged communities.

A valid and signed Purchase Order (or other binding Agreement, Contract, Buyer’s Order, or action/resolution by a government entity’s governing body) is required to place the voucher request.


I’m a fleet operator – what do I need to do?

Contact your dealer today to begin the voucher application process. If you don’t have a dealer, contact us and we can help assist you.


I’m a dealer – what do I need to do?

You are our HVIP champions! Dealers are responsible for completing voucher requests and coordinating with fleet operators (purchasers) and manufacturers/suppliers.

Training is required to become a 2021 HVIP approved dealer. New dealers must complete HVIP Dealer Training and current HVIP approved dealers must complete the HVIP Required Refresher. If you need help getting started, please contact us.


Is HVIP stackable with other funding?

Yes, depending on your fleet location. We can help you find and apply for stackable incentives.


I have questions about charging infrastructure. Is there funding?

Yes, infrastructure funding is available. We can help you find and apply for infrastructure incentives.


We don’t have any infrastructure at all, where do we begin?

Motiv provides a complete energy solution, including electrification beyond vehicles. Our team can assist with charge stations, turnkey installation, unified data and cloud management, and Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits, helping you build the depot of the future.
