More About California HVIP

The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Project (HVIP) makes clean vehicles more affordable for fleet operators through point-of-purchase price reductions. HVIP vouchers can be considered a type of “coupon” that fleet operators use at the time of placing their purchase order.


What is HVIP’s Innovative Small e-Fleets (ISEF) program?

ISEF is a new, separate pool of funding that helps fleets with 20 trucks or fewer and less than $15M in annual revenue get access to flexible funding.


Who can use the funds?

Any private or public fleet operator with medium to heavy-duty vehicles operating in California, with 20 or fewer trucks in their fleet and less than $15M annual revenue. HVIP-awarded vehicles must remain in California for the next three years. No vehicle scrapping necessary


How does HVIP work?

Fleet operators should connect with their dealers and a Motiv representative today to get started on the voucher application process. If you don’t have a dealer, we can connect you with one in your area. Contact us to get started.

$23M is available now as of September 12, 2022! Funding will be dispersed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A valid and signed Purchase Order (or other binding Agreement, Contract, Buyer’s Order, or action/resolution by a government entity’s governing body) is required to place the voucher request.


Fleet operators – here’s what to do:

Contact your dealer and a Motiv representative today to begin the voucher application process. If you don’t have a dealer, contact us and we can assist you.


Dealers – here’s what to do:

You are our HVIP champions! Dealers are responsible for completing voucher requests and coordinating with fleet operators (purchasers) and manufacturers/suppliers.


What about charging infrastructure?

We can help plan and install charging infrastructure. Our QuickStart Program helps fleets take their first steps to electrification, including infrastructure.


Is there funding for infrastructure?

Yes, funding is available. We can help you find and apply for infrastructure incentives.
