SPRINGFIELD, IL — In an electrifying move for green innovation, the Pritzker Administration has turbocharged its climate action plan, announcing a significant funding round for the Illinois Electric Vehicle Rebate Program.
Effective November 1, Illinois residents can accelerate their switch to eco-friendly transportation with a substantial $4,000 rebate on electric passenger vehicles or $1,500 for electric motorcycles, announced John J. Kim, Director of the Illinois EPA.
Prospective electric vehicle owners are urged to fast-track their applications to capitalize on the $12 million funding pot, which is predicted to drain before the January 31, 2024 deadline due to high demand. Governor JB Pritzker emphasized the program’s role in propelling the state towards its bold target of one million EVs on Illinois roads by 2030, highlighting the rebate’s pivotal part in making sustainable transport a reality for more Illinoisans.
The program prioritizes applications from low-income buyers, aligning with the state’s vision for equitable access to clean energy solutions.
