Clean Car Programme

On Sunday 13th June 2021, the Government announced the Clean Car Programme with new measures to take action on reducing transport emissions to help meet New Zealand’s 2050 carbon neutral target. Two initiatives will be put in place: The Clean Car Discount and the Clean Car Standard.

The Clean Car Programme runs from the 1st July to the 31st December 2021.

What does this mean? Rebates will be available for new and used Electric Vehicles (EV) and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) valued at $80,000 or less, with a 3-star safety rating or above.

The Clean Car Discount includes the below rebates:

  • New Electric Vehicle: $8,625
  • New Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle: $5,750
  • Used Electric Vehicle: $3,450
  • Used Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle: $2,300

From 1st January 2022

The Clean Car Discount program continues as above – however, the programme will extend to include the following from from Jan 1st 2022: low emission vehicles, not just BEV and PHEV’s. i.e In 2022, a set of smaller rebates will be added for vehicles that cannot be plugged in, where they fit within a low CO2 emissions limit.

Penalties on high emitting vehicles will also start from January 1st 2022. A sliding scale of Clean Car fees on high emission vehicles will be payable by the vehicle purchaser to NZ Transport Agency when the vehicle is first registered.
