California Clean Fuel Reward Program

Shopping for a new Volkswagen in California? Have your eye on one of our eco-friendly, fuel-optimizing electric models? Then it sounds like the California Clean Fuel Reward program is right for you!

The California Air Resources Board is offering you up to $750 for your next purchase or lease of an eligible BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) or PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle). Curious about how to apply for the California Clean Fuel Reward program, or how this program differs from the Clean Vehicle Rebates? Continue reading to find out more information!



What is the California Clean Fuel Reward Program?

The California Clean Fuel Reward program is a statewide electric vehicle purchasing and leasing incentive. This program is funded through the California Air Resource Board’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) institution and administered by the South California Edison Company on behalf of all participating Electric Distribution Utilities. Anyone who lives in California and purchases or leases a new EV from an eligible retailer can participate.

So, what are the benefits of California Clean Fuel Rewards vs. Clean Vehicle Rebates? The objective of CCFR is to help California achieve carbon reduction goals by incentivizing EV shoppers with upfront savings, rather than forcing them to undergo a lengthy application process before receiving any benefits.

How to Apply for the California Clean Fuel Reward Program?

The California Clean Fuel Rewards are available to anyone who purchases or leases an eligible Volkswagen EV through a participating retailer, such as Ventura Volkswagen. The only restriction is that the vehicle must be registered in the state of California and you must be a resident.

Applying for the program is easy! Just shop for your eligible vehicle, visit a participating dealership, and after negotiating an offer, subtract $750 from the purchase price! Keep in mind though, that this incentive only applies to vehicles from dealerships that were approved after your dealership became a participant in the CCFR program. Nevertheless, if your make and model fall outside the eligibility terms, don’t worry! Instead, check out our additional incentives to see what rewards you can still obtain for your upcoming EV purchase!

Why Buy an Electric Vehicle from Ventura Volkswagen?

The California Clean Fuel Reward program undoubtedly offers lucrative benefits for your upcoming EV purchase. But why buy an electric vehicle at all? Some of the best reasons to upgrade your Oxnard commute with an EV include:

  • Performance: Electric vehicles truly provide unbeatable performance. The latest electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque, so you can still enjoy thrilling acceleration on your drives.
  • Quieter Drive: One major benefit of electric vehicles that most drivers instantly notice is the serene ride. Electric vehicles don’t necessarily have any engine noise, so there’s less commotion in the cabin.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles don’t require engine oil, so there’s no need for oil changes.
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can use renewable energy. Electric cars are powered by electricity, meaning they can take advantage of renewable resources such as solar, wind, or even water.
  • Zero Emissions: There are plenty of environmental benefits of electric cars and one of them is the close to zero tailpipe emissions. Most electric cars don’t even have an exhaust system, so exhaust emissions are not a byproduct of the vehicle running.
