Everyone wants an E-bike. They’re fun, practical, and good for your health. Choose to ride an E-bike over driving a car, and it’s good for the climate too. But one thing holding many riders back from getting a new (or Certified Pre-Owned) E-bike is cost. 

Fortunately, many cities and states have introduced programs to incentivize more people to buy E-bikes. These rebates and vouchers could save you hundreds of dollars on your E-bike purchase. 

Our expert Ride Guides love helping buyers choose the perfect E-bike. The perfect cherry on top is when we can find a way to help you offset the cost. I’ve compiled all the past, present, and future E-bike rebates and vouchers that we’ve found (we’ll update as we find more). If you’re lucky enough to live somewhere offering an active E-bike incentive, take advantage! Riders who decide to get an E-bike are always happy they made the leap

E-bike Rebates and Vouchers by State

Nationwide E-bike Rebates and Vouchers


Program: The Electric Bicycle Incentive Kickstart for the Environment (E-BIKE) Act would offer a refundable tax credit amounting to 30% of the E-bike's price, capped at $1,500. New E-bikes that cost less than $8,000 would be eligible for a refund.

Details: The bill was originally eliminated from the Build Back Better Act in 2021. Reintroduced March 21st, 2023. The cost cap is up from the $4,000 in President Joe Biden's original Build Back Better proposal. The new bill also doubles the income limits to receive the maximum credit — up to $150,000 for a single filer and $300,000 for joint filers — to match the electric car credits in the Inflation Reduction Act.

The proposed bill defines eligible E-bikes as ones that meet battery safety standards set by Underwriters Laboratory, an industry leader in battery technology, or that "may be recognized by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission."
