Texas Electric & Hybrid Tax Credit

2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5

Here at Baytown Hyundai, we’re proud to offer a full lineup of hybrid and electric vehicles, including the fully-electric Hyundai IONIQ 5 SUV and hybrid variants of our crowd-favorite Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai Sonata models. There are plenty of benefits to driving an EV or hybrid, from their environmental efficiency to their quiet ride and agile handling. But there are monetary benefits as well! Driving a hybrid in the Houston area qualifies you for a state tax credit, while driving an EV qualifies you for a federal tax credit as well. The team at Baytown Hyundai has everything you need to know about the Texas hybrid tax credit and electric car incentives in the guide below.



Incentives for Hybrid and EV Drivers in Texas

Texas Hybrid Car Tax Incentive Programs

Does Texas give a tax credit for hybrid cars? The answer is yes! If you drive a hybrid or a number of other eligible vehicles, you’re qualified for the Texas hybrid tax credit, which can be up to $2,500. The incentive is part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan, a plan designed to improve the environment by rewarding drivers who own fuel-efficient vehicles. You can find the application instructions in this document.

You can also qualify for the Texas hybrid tax credit if your car is powered by one of the following:

  • Compressed natural gas
  • Liquified petroleum gas (propane)
  • Hydrogen fuel cell

Texas Electric Car Tax Rebate Programs

If you’ve eliminated gasoline entirely from your Pasadena commute and drive a fully-electric car like the Hyundai IONIQ 5, you can take advantage of two electric car tax rebate programs:

  • Federal: The federal government currently offers an incentive of up to $7,500 for eligible electric vehicle drivers. This tax credit also applies to plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV), so you may be eligible for it even if your car isn’t fully electric. You can check your car’s eligibility on and claim the credit by filling out IRS Form 8936.
  • State: Just like driving a hybrid, driving an EV qualifies you for a tax credit from the State of Texas, offered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. This electric car tax credit can be up to $2,500. When combined with the maximum federal tax credit, that means you could be getting up to $10,000 just for driving an EV in Texas!
