The rebate that you will get on your new electric car depends on how much battery-only range the car has. The following table outlines the rebate thresholds. If you already have a specific car model in mind, view the Drive Clean Rebate amount for each qualifying model.
Eligible Westminster residents who buy a car from qualifying dealerships in town can get a $500 rebate from the city starting in April, a program that city officials say would encourage people to shop locally.
City Councilmembers approved renewing the subsidy by a 4-1 vote at a late October meeting, with Councilmember Carlos Manzo dissenting, saying that the previous program should be further examined before approving it for another five years.
Councilmember Manzo expressed concerns about the program and attempted multiple times to get his fellow council members to agree to a thorough analysis of the previous car rebate program before approving the new one.
The rebate will be applied to the price of the car at the time of final purchase/lease of the vehicle. Reimbursement will then be offered to the dealerships upon proper submission of all required documents within 30 days of the request, the staff report said.

A car insurance deductible is the amount of money your auto insurance company will deduct from a claim check. Auto insurance deductibles are most commonly associated with collision and comprehensive insurance.
For instance, say cause an accident that leads to $4,000 in damages to your car. You have collision insurance with a $500 deductible, so your car insurance claim payout would be $3,500. If you had a $2,000 deductible instead, your insurance company would only pay out $2,000 on the same claim.
The biggest savings are typically available to drivers who make a substantial change to their deductible, such as jumping from $250 to $2,000. The actual amount you save primarily depends on your current deductible, your new deductible and your auto insurance company.
If the answer is yes, then increasing your deductible can help you unlock some savings. If the answer is no, then the money you save may not be worth the financial hardships that would potentially follow an accident claim.
Based on our analysis of auto insurance deductibles, increasing a $500 deductible to a $1,500 deductible can save you an average of $278 a year. But your financial obligation after a claim will increase by $1,000.
If you make a collision or comprehensive claim within the first 3.5 years of bumping up your deductible, your upfront savings will be negated by the higher deductible. If you go claims free for more than 3.5 years, however, your decision to increase your deductible will begin to pay off.
We used data from Quadrant Information Services to analyze average rates for a good driver with $250, $500, $1,000, $1,500 and $2,000 car insurance deductibles. Rates are based on full coverage auto insurance (liability coverage of 100/300/100, uninsured motorist coverage and collision and comprehensive insurance) for a 30-year-old female driver with a good driving record.
Depending on where you live, other types of car insurance, like personal injury protection and uninsured motorist coverage for property damage, may have a deductible. For instance, Florida car insurance companies must offer consumers PIP coverage with the option to choose a $250, $500 or $1,000 deductible.

Auto insurance helps pay for the injuries and damage that can happen when you own and drive a car or other motor vehicle. This brochure can help you compare policies and make informed decisions when you buy auto insurance. It can help you understand your auto policy. Your policy is a legal document, and it is important that you understand it. Your motor vehicle may be an auto, truck, van, motorcycle, or another kind of private passenger vehicle.
Liability coverage helps pay for injuries or damage to others when you are responsible. If you own and drive a vehicle, you must follow the financial responsibility laws in the state Vehicle Code. The most common way to do this is to buy auto liability coverage.
Driving without insurance is illegal. Also, you must have liability coverage to register your car. Your insurance company tells the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) if you buy auto insurance or if you stop paying your premium.
If you do not show proof of insurance when asked, you will get a ticket. If you do not have any insurance, your license may be suspended and your vehicle could be impounded. Remember, driving is a privilege, not a right.
Your insurance company will send you a card to show proof of insurance. It lists the insured vehicles and the name of the policy owner. It also shows the policy number and the dates the policy starts and ends. Keep this card in your car.
You may want higher liability limits than the law requires. In general, the more assets you have, the more you could lose in a lawsuit. You should discuss your situation with your agent, broker, insurance company, or financial advisor.
A title to a vehicle is the legal document showing ownership. If the vehicle has more than one owner, and the names are joined by \"AND\", both owners must sign the title documents for a sale or transfer to be legal. If \"OR\" or \"AND/OR\" appears between the owner's name, either owner can sign the title document as the seller or purchaser of the vehicle.
Do not buy a vehicle from an individual unless the seller has the title to the vehicle in their name and can give it to you at the time of sale. Always be sure the vehicle identification number (VIN) on a title matches the vehicle identification number on the vehicle. The vehicle odometer reading must not be less than the odometer reading on the face of the title.
If you purchase a new vehicle, one that has never been titled in any state, the dealer must provide you with a manufacturer's certificate or statement of origin. This document comes from the manufacturer and is provided to the dealer. When the vehicle is sold the dealer completes the reassignment of this document, which is what you will need to title your new vehicle.
West Virginia dealers can certify the price by using the certification on the bottom of the Application for Certificate of Title for a Motor Vehicle (DMV-1-TR), if this is not completed, a dealer invoice is required.
If a trade-in is involved, the 6% titling sales tax would be based on the purchase price minus the trade-in (trade-in must be titled in West Virginia and in the applicant's name to receive credit, REBATES are taxable).
Most states do not collect taxes for non-resident purchasers. West Virginia does not charge non-residents the 6% tax since the vehicle is not being titled in WV. However, there are some states that do collect taxes on vehicle purchases. You do not get credit for taxes paid to another state.
If the vehicle purchased is used, you must have the previous owner's title properly reassigned to you whether it is a West Virginia title or an out-of-state title. Both the seller and the buyer must sign the back of the West Virginia title. If it's an out-of-state title the previous owner must sign the title and the name and address of the new owner should appear on the title. The new owner would then submit the out-of-state title along with the Application for Certificate of Title for a Motor Vehicle (DMV-1-TR).
Model year(s) 2011 and newer will be required to have the current odometer reading and acknowledged with signatures of both buyer and seller, this will be in effect until 2031, at that point any vehicle 20 model years or newer will be required to have the current odometer reading..
If the vehicle is purchased from an individual and the purchase price is below 50% of the current NADA Clean Loan Book value, a notarized bill of sale must accompany the application for title, or the tax will be assessed on the NADA Clean Loan Book value.
If the vehicle is purchased from an individual and the purchase price is above 50%, the tax will be assessed on that price. Any vehicle not purchased from a registered dealer which is two years old or less will be taxed on the current NADA Clean Loan Book value despite the purchase price, a notarized bill of sale will not be accepted.
Titles being submitted listing a purchase price, whether the price has been altered or not, and accompanied by a bill of sale showing another price will not be accepted. The original owner must apply for a duplicate title and begin the process over. If unable to obtain a duplicate title, tax will be assessed on the book value regardless of what price is reflected on the title or bill of sale. 59ce067264
