This offer is on a first come, first serve basis. If rebate refunds are exhausted due to high demand, Waka Kotahi will notify customers that the rebate window is closed and no further rebates will be offered.

Am I eligible?

Eligible purchases are for new electric vehicles first registered in New Zealand between 1 July and 31 March 2022, with a Drive Away Price under $80,000 (including GST and on road costs). The rebate is only accessible to New Zealand residents and businesses. Learn more.

How can I receive the Clean Car Discount?

Once the vehicle registration and delivery is complete, application for the rebate can be completed via Waka Kotahi. Rebate applications will require the vehicle plate number, a copy of the MVOA and Final Invoice and bank account details of the registered person. Learn more.
