Eligibility for rebate

Before proceeding with the registration, please ensure that you meet all eligibility criteria in the Guidelines.

This form is required to register your interest in the rebate. It does not guarantee you will receive the rebate. 

This rebate applies only to battery electric vehicles. A battery electric vehicle has an electric battery that is externally recharged. It has no tailpipe emissions while driving.

There are two stages in the application process. You must apply for Stage 1 to be eligible to apply for Stage 2.

Stage 1 – if you have purchased, or intend to purchase, an eligible vehicle after the start date of this program (17 November 2023) you can apply for Stage 1. If successful, you will be placed on the Register and your rebate held for six months.

Stage 2 - once you have received and registered your vehicle in Tasmania within six months of your Stage 1 application, you can apply for Stage 2 to receive payment of the rebate.
