At Car Pros Volkswagen of San Bernardino, we are proud to introduce our shoppers to the benefits of EV ownership, including: 


  • Climate Friendly 

    • Even when charging an EV with electricity generated with fossil fuels, electric vehicles still release fewer greenhouse gases into the environment than combustion engine vehicles. This leads to a reduction of our reliance on petroleum products because EVs use energy so efficiently. Total EV emissions will approach zero as more renewable energy sources become more readily available. 

  • HOV Lane Access 

    • Due to California's desire to get more electric vehicles out on the road, the state is encouraging drivers to choose EVs by offering free access to carpool lanes, no matter the number of occupants. 

  • Easy to Maintain

    • The time-tested electric motor technology has fewer moving parts. EV powertrains typically need very little maintenance, delivery on high efficiency, and do not need an oil change. This helps to keep you on the road longer and dips into your pocketbook less. 

  • Fun

    • Delivering on quick acceleration when you need it, electric motors provide excellent performance whether you're pulling onto the highway, passing another vehicle on the road, or taking off at a traffic light. 

  • Quiet

    • EV owners often find their commutes less stressful because of how quiet electric vehicles are while driving. As more electric vehicles hit the road, living near a busy roadway could become a much more quiet experience. 

  • Reduced Emissions

    • The reduced tailpipe emissions of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) and the total lack of emissions of battery electric vehicles (BEV) mean that the more of these vehicles are out on the road will lead to a reduction of smog and pollution. This will lead to significant health benefits, especially in higher populated and environmentally disadvantaged parts of California.

The program is administered by Southern California Edison Company on behalf of all participating Electric Distribution Utilities. The California Clean Fuel Reward is available to anyone who resides in California and purchases or leases a new eligible vehicle from a participating retailer. The objective of the program is to help California reach its carbon reduction goals by incentivizing retail customers seeking to purchase or lease a new vehicle to choose an electric vehicle by providing a time-of-sale discount on eligible vehicles.

Battery Electric (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) light-duty vehicles with a battery capacity of 5 kWh or greater are eligible for the California Clean Fuel Reward.

The reward is offered on a sliding scale, depending on battery size, up to $1,500. Vehicles must be purchased at a participating retailer. Find a retailer near you.

California Clean Fuel Reward recipients may not be eligible to receive other utility-sponsored LCFS rewards, such as the SCE Clean Fuel Reward, PG&E Clean Fuel Rebate, or SDG&E Limited EV Purchase Credit. Please visit specific utility websites for more details on eligibility of specific programs.
