Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Purchase or Lease Incentive Program

Statewide program to provide financial incentives for the purchase or lease of an eligible vehicle.

The Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Purchase or Lease Incentive Program (LDPLIP) provides rebate incentives statewide to persons who purchase or lease an eligible new light-duty motor vehicle powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), or hydrogen fuel cell or other electric drive (plug-in or plug-in hybrid). This website will provide you with useful information about the program, eligibility, and how to apply.


  The TCEQ is now accepting applications for funding consideration under the LDPLIP. Applications must be received and date-stamped at the front desk, Rm. 1301, 1st floor of Building F on the premises of the TCEQ by no later than 5:00 p.m., Central Time, May 31, 2019.
  The TCEQ has received inquiries about why an electric vehicle purchased or leased outside of Texas is not eligible for an incentive. Under the statutory provisions for the Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Purchase or Lease Incentive Program (LDPLIP) only vehicles sold or leased in Texas are to be included in the list of eligible vehicles provided by vehicle manufacturers. This is consistent with the statutory language and prior program implementation.

Instructions for completing the Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Purchase or Lease Incentive Program Manufacturer Information Request

Only vehicles purchased or leased in Texas are eligible for the incentive. For vehicles purchased and then converted to operate on an eligible fuel within 500 miles of the operation after first sale, both the sale or lease of the vehicle and the installation of the eligible fuel system must occur in Texas.

To be eligible for an incentive, a vehicle or conversion system must be included on the list of eligible vehicle models and conversion systems compiled by TCEQ. In order for a manufacturer to ensure that its vehicle or conversion system is included on the list, the manufacturer must submit a report to the TCEQ listing the new light-duty motor vehicle models and conversion systems meeting the eligibility requirements under 30 TAC §114.612. If your vehicle is not included on the Eligible Vehicle List, please contact the TCEQ to determine whether the vehicle may qualify for a rebate under this grant program.

The TCEQ is requesting responses only from those entities listed as the manufacturer on the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Certificate of Conformity and/or the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order. Entities not listed as the manufacturer on the EPA certificate and/or CARB Executive Order should not complete the forms.
