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 48 months. Rebates apply to both individual vehicles and fleet acquisitions.

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

An additional 10% may be added to the currently available incentive block value for vehicles above 14,000 pounds GVWR if the vehicle is registered in or will operate more than 50% of the time within census block groups that meet the State's Environmental Justice Income Criteria.
