California to allocate $10 million for the electric bicycle incentive program

According to Streetsblog, California has allocated over $1 billion this year to lay down electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. Prior to this, billions of dollars were spent on subsidies to promote the popularization of electric vehicles and stimulate consumption. The state government is actively taking measures to address climate change and implement environmental measures, but it did not include electric bicycles in the subsidy scope before. It was only with the positive suggestions of lawmakers and the public that subsidies were introduced for electric bicycles.

But there are also conditions for applying for this subsidy.

According to the California Cycling Association, the government will provide $750 vouchers for people purchasing electric bicycles and $1500 vouchers for people purchasing freight electric bicycles. Moreover, single individuals with an annual income of less than $51000 and families with a family income of less than $106000 will receive additional subsidies.

The subsidy plan includes Class 1 electric bicycles and Class 2 electric bicycles, which are vehicles with speeds below 32 kilometers per hour, but does not include Class 3 electric bicycles.

Moreover, the government requires that vehicles must be purchased at a local bicycle store in California or online by a company with a business location in California, otherwise they will not be eligible for this discount.

According to statistics, Californians mainly use cars for short distance travel, with 60% of the travel distance not exceeding 10 kilometers. Short distance transportation is the most important daily travel demand. Whether using fuel powered or electric vehicles, it will undoubtedly cause resource waste. In addition, the use of electric bicycles is more convenient and more suitable for people’s daily travel.
