Electric Vehicle Discount Program

The City of Tacoma and Tacoma Public Utilities have partnered to launch an Electric Vehicle Discount Program to lower the cost of purchasing or leasing an electric car or bike in Fall 2018 in Tacoma. This is a pre-negotiated pricing program with local Tacoma dealerships and bike shops to deliver a no-hassle deal to interested buyers. You can save thousands of dollars on full battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and electric bicycles. When purchasing an electric vehicle, you will also receive a discount on selected home charging equipment through select manufacturers. For more information about this and other electric car opportunities, visit the electric vehicle web page.
