MOR-EV

The Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles (MOR-EV) Program aims to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and support greater adoption of electric vehicles across the Commonwealth by offering rebates to consumers (residents, corporations, and other entities) who register their on-road zero emission vehicles in Massachusetts. MOR-EV provides rebates for the purchase or lease of eligible battery electric vehicles and fuel-cell electric vehicles, including passenger cars and medium- and heavy-duty trucks and other vehicle types. The program also offers rebates for used EVs, a rebate adder for income-qualifying residents, and a rebate adder for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles that are registered within or operate more than half of the time in census block groups that meet the State’s Environmental Justice criteria. Full program information, application processes, a list of eligible vehicles, and more are available on the MOR-EV website.

MOR-EV is funded by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs’ Department of Energy Resources (DOER).

For more information on all program offerings and the applicable rebate processes, please visit the MOR-EV Program website.

MOR-EV Rebate Eligibility

Electric vehicles purchased or leased prior to regulation changes that took effect on August 8, 2023, may still be eligible for a Standard MOR-EV rebate if the vehicle met the program requirements that were in effect at the time of purchase or lease. Eligibility to apply for a MOR-EV rebate under the program before the regulation went into effect will permanently expire on August 8, 2024.

If you believe you may be eligible, please reach out to MOR-EV support directly via email (mor-ev@energycenter.org) with a copy of your vehicle registration and final purchase or lease agreement and include “Pre-regulations rebate request” in the email subject line.
