New Jersey Drivers May Soon Get $5,000 Rebates for Electric Cars (AB4819)

New Jersey is on the cusp of taking its biggest step yet to promote electric vehicles.

The state’s Senate and Assembly passed a bill late Monday calling for 2 million plug-in electric vehicles by 2035. That’s nearly 20 times the number in the state today. It would mean about 70% of all light-duty vehicles in New Jersey would be electric, based on the number of automobiles on the road now.
