Arizona State Tax Credit for Electric Cars

2022 Nissan LEAF charging

The growing popularity and accessibility of electric vehicles, like the new Nissan LEAF, means it’s easier than ever to bring efficient performance to your Peoria commutes. To further incentivize drivers, several Arizona electric car tax credits are available with your purchase of a new, environmentally beneficial vehicle. With the team at Avondale Nissan, learn how you can add savings to your budget with Arizona EV incentives. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


Arizona Electric Car Incentives

The state of Arizona identifies alternative fuel vehicles as vehicles using other fuels including propane, natural gas, electricity, hydrogen, and a blend of hydrogen with propane or natural gas. If you’re interested in adding a hybrid or electric vehicle to your daily Phoenix commutes, there are a few Arizona state tax credits for electric cars you can take advantage of:

  • Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Parking Incentive: This Arizona EV incentive allows drivers of hybrid, PHEV, and electric vehicles to park in carpool areas for quicker access to the stores you love or a shorter walk into work.
  • High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane Exemption: The Arizona Department of Transportation incentivizes you with a quicker trip on the highways around Surprise when you have a registered AFV license plate. No matter how many occupants, EV drivers are allowed to use the carpool lane in rush hour traffic.
  • Reduced Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) License Tax: Your budget can benefit from the Arizona EV tax credit as it offers a reduced vehicle license tax on an AFV at $4 for every $100 in assessed value.
  • Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Emissions Test Exemption: While it doesn’t save your budget, this Arizona electric car incentive saves you time. This exemption allows qualified models first registered in the state to forgo a complete emissions testing in the first years of purchase. Although this doesn’t apply to vehicles commuting into Phoenix or Tucson.

There are many more Arizona electric car tax credits and incentives, be sure to check out the other state and utility advantages with EV models.

Federal Tax Credits

While you’re sure to find a benefit of an efficient vehicle with the Arizona EV tax credits, you can also find savings on your Surprise commute with federal credit. Qualified plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicles purchased new may be eligible for a federal income tax credit of up to $7,500. This can vary depending on the battery capacity used to power the vehicle and other factors.
