COVID-19 Update

The Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) has instated a work from home policy for all employees due to increasing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19. Operations for the Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles (MOR-EV) will continue but delays to check processing and mailing may occur until our office re-opens. If you have mailed in supporting documents for your application, the postmark will be honored as the submission date, but we will review these documents upon re-opening of the CSE office. You may experience delays in processing.

MOR-EV Trucks

Mov-EV trucks

The MOR-EV Trucks Program is designed to reduce air pollution emissions in Massachusetts by increasing the use of medium duty/heavy duty on-road electric vehicles, including trucks, buses and vans.

It offers rebates for public and private purchases or leasing of qualified new vehicles registered in the Commonwealth and maintained for at least 36 months. Rebates apply to both individual vehicles and fleet acquisitions.

Purchases or leases made on or after February 16, 2021 are eligible.

Increased funding is available if the vehicle is registered in, or will operate more than 50% of the time within, a designated environmental justice community census block. An additional 10% may be added to the currently available incentive value.
