New Zealand's Clean Car Programme
NZ’s Government announced the Clean Car Programme on 13 June 2021. It includes measures that will help NZ become carbon neutral by 2050.
Under the expanded Clean Car Programme, vehicles registered for the first time in New Zealand may receive a rebate or a fee as long as certain criteria are met, including the amount of carbon dioxide produced, the vehicle’s safety rating, and the vehicle’s price.
For More Information
The RightCar and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency websites have more detailed information on the Clean Car Programme, vehicle eligibility criteria, and frequently asked questions.
Once your vehicle is registered and has been allocated a number plate, you can apply for a rebate via the Government’s Waka Kotahi website.
