Drive Clean Bay Area's Electric Vehicle Discount Program

Drive Clean Bay Area is here to help you Electrify Your Ride. Sign up for our EV Preferred Pricing Campaign, then join us for one of our free Zoom events covering the A to Z of making the switch to an EV. When you attend one of our Electrify Your Ride events, you'll receive priority placement, meaning you’ll be able to take advantage of the discounts a week in advance, which puts you at the front of the line for the limited supply of EVs.
