Incentives for High-Efficiency Vehicles

The high cost of advanced-technology fuel-efficient vehicles is a major barrier to their entry into the marketplace. To encourage consumers to purchase these vehicles, states may offer a number of financial incentives, including tax credits, rebates, and sales tax exemptions.

A rebate of up to 10% the base price of a plug-in vehicle is available to residents and businesses within Guam.

In 2012 Puerto Rico amended the Internal Revenue code to allow an excise tax reimbursement of up to 65% for buyers of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The reimbursement ranges from $2,000 to $8,000 and is available until 2016. Buyers of fully electric vehicles are waived from paying excise tax altogether.
