In an innovative step towards promoting environmentally sustainable transport options, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has rolled out a tax credit offer of up to $4,000* (or 30% of the vehicle's sale price) for preowned electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrids. This program is designed to motivate individuals towards eco-conscious transportation decisions, aiding in reducing carbon footprints.

Insight into the Tax Credit:

This tax incentive for preowned electric vehicles signifies a key initiative in the push for green energy adoption, aiming to lessen the reliance on fossil fuel-powered vehicles. Buyers of eligible used electric and hybrid vehicles are now presented with an opportunity to receive a tax credit of up to $4,000*, offering a significant financial incentive to transition to electric transport.

Eligibility Requirements:

For entitlement to the IRS tax credit, vehicles must meet specified conditions. They must be certified plug-in electric drive motor vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of under 14,000 pounds. The EV must also be purchased for personal use and not for resale. Our inventory includes a selection of qualifying preowned electric vehicles to maximize your chances of receiving this tax benefit.

Mechanism of the Credit:

At Toms River Volkswagen, we are licensed and registered with the IRS to process the necessary paperwork directly at the point of sale, granting you immediate access to the credit. This eliminates the need for you to bear the full cost upfront and manage the submission process with the IRS. The displayed prices for eligible EVs already account for the potential IRS credit. Refer to the IRS guidelines for further details*.

Additional Advantages:

Choosing a pre-owned electric vehicle is not only financially wise due to the IRS tax credit but also comes with the perks of lower operational costs, fewer maintenance needs, and a smaller environmental footprint. Electing an electric vehicle aligns with the broader mission of fostering a sustainable and cleaner future.


The IRS's offer of a tax credit for pre-owned electric vehicles marks a crucial advancement in encouraging eco-friendly travel options. This incentive not only aids in financial savings but also pushes us towards a positive environmental impact. As we move collectively towards a more sustainable future, leveraging incentives like the IRS tax credit can make adopting electric vehicles even more attractive. Opt for a wise and eco-conscious decision by exploring the realm of pre-owned electric vehicles and embracing the comprehensive benefits they offer.
