*IMPORTANT: the vehicle models listed here have a base Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) below $45,000. However, different trims, upgrades, or add-on accessories may increase the purchase price over $45,000 and thus disqualify the vehicle from the rebate.
3. What is my vehicle’s “cash price”?
Your vehicle’s cash price is found on Line 1-A (“Cash Price of Motor Vehicle and Accessories) of your vehicle purchase agreement. Line 1-A represents the Manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of your vehicle including any upgrades or add-on accessories and manufacturer destination/transport fees. It does not include taxes and government fees. Certain discounts at the time of sale may be incorporated into your cash price but this varies by manufacturer and/or dealership so ask your dealer for details on this.
4. What is my vehicle’s date of purchase?
Your date of purchase is considered the date your vehicle was first registered with the California DMV. View our sample supporting documents to find this date.
