Learn more about Florida electric vehicle incentives and your green automotive future with Kia Delray!

Green Vehicle Definition

Boynton Beach drivers who want a “green vehicle” should know what such a term means. Eco-friendly vehicles put out fewer greenhouse gas emissions than a normal internal combustion engine. All of the following vehicles have been referred to with this term, but not all will qualify for the Florida electric vehicle incentive:

  • AFVs = Alternative fuel vehicles (EVs, PHEVs, biodiesel vehicles, fuel-cell vehicles)
  • EVs = Electric vehicles
  • PHEVs = Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles
  • ILEVs = Inherently low emissions vehicles
  • HOVs = High-occupancy vehicles

HOV Lane Facts

In the state of Florida, drivers can get a special HOV decal (where HOV stands for High-Occupancy Vehicle) when they drive a green vehicle. If you have a ILEV or hybrid vehicle in Florida, you can get a HOV decal from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles when you follow these instructions:

  • Fill out an application form.
  • Bring the form and a small fee to the local tax collector’s office or include postage with fee.
  • Fee is $5 for one year or $10 for two years.

In addition, if you drive a green vehicle, you don’t have to get smog or emissions testing. It’s perfect for West Palm Beach drivers who want to save time. And don’t forget, with a HOV decal, you can get into the express lanes on I-95 for free!

Florida Electric Vehicle Incentives

When you get one of the Kia EV models such as the Soul EV, you can also get some money from both the US and local Florida governments for your trouble. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • If you purchase a new plug-in electric vehicle under 14,000 pounds, you’ll get a $7,500 tax credit from the federal government.
  • If you buy an electric vehicle in Jacksonville, you can get either $500 or $1,000 extra depending on your battery size.
  • If you want a pre-owned EV and live in Orlando, there is the possibility of extra bonuses.
