The following requirements apply to vehicles as part of NYCAFV-VIF:

  • Vehicle must be a Class 3-8 All-Electric, Hybrid-Electric or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Vehicle truck or bus.  Personal passenger vehicles are not eligible for Program funding.

  • The vehicle must be purchased from a participating Vendor. Vendors must provide documentation to NYSERDA verifying the Incremental Cost of their vehicles as part of the Vendor approval process or as part of a voucher request for specialty vehicles.

  • The vehicle and vehicle chassis must be new and not yet have been registered in any state, or paid for by the Vehicle Purchaser (other than a vehicle down payment), nor any purchase order issued prior to June 16, 2012 in order to receive a voucher.  Used vehicles (including vehicles used by dealers, manufacturers, or other entities or for demonstration purposes) are not eligible for the Program except for a CNG Conversion.

  • No retrofits or other hardware or software modifications that significantly impact the vehicle’s emissions characteristics   are permitted for three years from the date the vehicle enters into service. This prohibition includes the installation of fuel-fired heaters.

  • All Eligible Vehicles must be greater than 10,001 lbs GVWR, must be approved by NYSERDA, and must meet all federal and state requirements for operation in New York State.  The OEM must also certify that the vehicle model complies with all applicable federal safety standards for new motor vehicles and new motor vehicle equipment issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVS) are found in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 571.

  • The vehicle, vehicle engine (if applicable), drive train, battery packs/energy storage system(s), must be covered by an OEM warranty. Prior to approving a vehicle model to the list of eligible vehicles posted on the Program Website, NYSERDA may request that the OEM provide copies of representative vehicle, engine and battery warranties and a description of the OEM’s plans to provide warranty and routine vehicle service. The warranty must provide protection for a minimum of 36 months or 50,000 miles whichever comes first. The first 12 months of the coverage period must be a full warranty covering, at a minimum, engine (if applicable), motor, drive train, battery, parts and labor. If the warranty for the remaining 24 months is prorated, the percentage of the battery pack's original value to be covered or refunded must be at least as high as the percentage of the prorated coverage period still remaining. For the purpose of this computation, the age of the battery pack must be expressed in intervals no larger than three months.

  • If the Vendor does not own a New York State repair facility or does not have a contract with a New York State entity to provide repair and warranty service, the Vendor must submit a plan for how it intends to provide warranty service, replacement parts, and technical support in New York State.  The maintenance/repair plan must be submitted to NYSERDA for approval.  The plan must be approved by NYSERDA for vehicles to be eligible to receive incentives under the Program.

  • The Vendor, as part of submitting documentation to the VPC for eligible vehicles, must send the cost of the vehicles they want included in the program and the cost of relevant comparable conventional trucks with equivalent payloads.  The difference in price between those vehicles is the Incremental Cost, and determines the voucher amount up to 80% of the Incremental Cost, capped at $40,000.
