Press Release

Thinking about buying an electric vehicle? Be sure to stop by the 2024 Buffalo Auto Show first.

New York state will have experts on hand to talk about how to get a rebate on a new electric car purchase or lease. A new interactive kiosk will help visitors locate public fast chargers and map out New York road trips to see how an EV would fit in their lifestyle. Experts can also answer questions about charging at home or on the road, costs, the basics of charging, and locator and payment apps.

The Drive Clean Rebate program, an up to $2,000 point-of-sale rebate administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), helps consumers purchase or lease an electric vehicle. The rebate is offered at participating car dealerships with higher rebates available on longer-range, all-electric vehicles. Since 2017, the program has provided more than 125,000 rebates.

The New York Power Authority is installing hundreds of fast chargers throughout the state as part of its EVolve NY network. More than 150 of these chargers, which can power up a vehicle in 15-30 minutes, are currently available to give EV drivers more options for quick, convenient charging and to help New York state achieve its clean energy goals.

Visit NYPA and NYSERDA in Room No. 108 in the Energy Zone.

The show at the Buffalo Convention Center runs from 1-9 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday; and 10 am. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
