Electric Vehicle (EV) Incentives in New Jersey

Tax incentives and/or other incentives for drivers of electric vehicles in NJ.

Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Tax Exemption

ZEVs sold, rented, or leased in New Jersey are exempt from state sales and use tax. This exemption does not apply to partial ZEVs, including hybrid electric vehicles. ZEVs are defined as vehicles that meet California Air Resources Board zero emission standards for that model year. For a list of qualified ZEV, see the New Jersey Department of the Treasury ZEV Sales Tax Exemption website. (Reference New Jersey Statutes 54:32B-8.55)

High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane Exemption

New Jersey Turnpike Authority (Authority) allows qualified plug-in electric vehicles to travel in the HOV lanes located between Interchange 11 and Interchange 14 on the New Jersey Turnpike. For more information, see the Authority Travel Tools website. (Reference 49 New Jersey Register 3236(b) and New Jersey Administrative Code 19:9-1.24)

Clean Truck Port Requirements

Port drayage trucks must meet or exceed Model Year 2010 engine federal emissions standards to access the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) marine terminals. Drayage trucks operating on liquefied or compressed natural gas, electricity, or hybrid electric technology are exempt from these requirements. For purposes of this rule, drayage trucks are defined as on-road vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 33,001 pounds or greater and intended to load, unload, or transport cargo from PANYNJ terminals. Additional rules apply. For more information, see the PANYNJ website.

Plug-In Electric Vehicle Toll Discount Program

New Jersey Turnpike Authority's Green Pass Discount Plan provides a 10% discount on off-peak New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway toll rates for drivers of vehicles that have a fuel economy of 45 miles per gallon or higher and meet the California Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle standard. Vehicles must register with New Jersey E-ZPass. For more information, including application instructions, see the E-ZPass Discount Programs website.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Grants

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection provides grants through the It Pay$ to Plug In: New Jersey’s Electric Vehicle Workplace Charging Grant Program (Program) to support plug-in electric vehicle adoption and EV charging station installation. Reimbursement grants are offered on a first-come, first-served basis for the cost and installation of eligible EV charging stations at workplaces, government and educational facilities, non-profits, and multi-unit dwellings.

The Program is part of New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan. For more information, including application and eligibility requirements, visit the Drive Green NJ Charging Challenge website.

Electric Vehicle (EV) and EV Charging Station Deployment Goals

The State of New Jersey will work to increase the number of EVs and related infrastructure to meet the following state goals:

  • 10% of new buses purchased by the New Jersey Transit Corporation must be zero emission vehicles (ZEV) by December 31, 2024. Then 50% of new buses must be ZEV by December 31, 2026, and 100% must be ZEV by December 31, 2032.
  • By December 31, 2025, there must be 400 direct current fast charging (DCFC) stations and 1,000 Level 2 EV charging staitons installed and available for public use at minimally 200 locations. 75 locations must include at least two DCFC stations installed along travel corridors, while 100 locations must include at least two DCFC stations in community locations. Additionally, 15% of all multi-family residential properties must include EV charging station infrastructure and 20% of all franchised overnight lodging must have EV charging stations available for guests.
  • By December 31, 2035, there will be 2 million registered light-duty EVs in the state, and 100% of state-owned, non-emergency light-duty vehicles must be EVs.
  • By December 31, 2040, 85% of all new light-duty vehicles sold in the state will be EVs.

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) must establish goals for transportation electrification and infrastructure development for medium- and heavy-duty on-road diesel vehicles and charging infrastructure by December 31, 2020. For more information, see the NJBPU Electric Vehicle Incentive Programs website.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) develops and implements a public education program regarding the availability and benefits of EVs, state EV goals, and the availability of EV and EV charging station incentives.

NJDEP and NJBPU must prepare and submit a report to the governor and legislature every five years on the state of the EV market in New Jersey, progress towards achieving the above goals, barriers to the achievement of the goals, and recommendations for legislative or regulatory action to address barriers.

(Reference New Jersey Statutes 48:25-3)

Electric Vehicle (EV) Rebate Program

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities offers state residents a rebate in the amount of $25 per mile of EPA-rated all-electric range, up to $5,000, to purchase or lease a new EV with an MSRP of $55,000 or less. Rebates may be limited to one award per person. For more information, and rebate availability, see New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program Electric Vehicle Incentive Programs website. (Reference New Jersey Statutes 48:25-4)

Energy Master Plan

New Jersey has developed an Energy Master Plan (EMP) that will guide the State to achieve its goals of electrifying the transportation sector and achieving 100% carbon-neutral electricity generation by 2050. The EMP calls for decarbonization of the transportation sector through:

  • Supporting the deployment of 330,000 light-duty electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025;
  • Deploying electric vehicle (EV) charging stations throughout the state;
  • Creating incentives for EV charging stations;
  • Educating consumers and fleet owners on EVs;
  • Transitioning state fleet vehicles to EVs;
  • Partnering with industry to develop incentives for medium- and heavy-duty all-electric or fuel-cell vehicles; and
  • Exploring policies that accelerate the adoption of alternative fuels.

For more information, see the Energy Master Plan website.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policies for Condominiums

Condominium associations may not prohibit or restrict the installation or use of EV charging stations in a homeowner’s designated parking space. Condominium associations may put reasonable restrictions on EV charging stations, but the policies may not significantly increase the cost of the EV charging station or prohibit installation. Homeowners must comply with applicable health and safety codes and architectural standards, engage a licensed installation contractor, and provide a certificate of insurance. The homeowner is responsible for the cost of the installation, operation, maintenance, repair, removal, or replacement of the station in their parking space, as well as any resulting damage to the EV charging station or surrounding area. (Reference New Jersey Statutes 45:22A-43)

Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Infrastructure Support

Any individual, business, or public entity completing infrastructure improvement projects or redeveloping residential, commercial, industrial, public, or other structures is encouraged to include ZEV fuel and charging infrastructure in redevelopment plans. ZEVs must meet emissions and compliance requirements specified in Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations for the applicable model year, including but not limited to, electric vehicles (EVs) and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Infrastructure projects are encouraged to:

  • Identify locations for public electric vehicle charging stations and hydrogen fueling stations;
  • Construct ZEV charging and refueling infrastructure;
  • Build and allow EV charging in the right-of-way; and,
  • Designate EV only parking spaces.
