    Hate to burst your bubble. As the ancient saying goes,

    “The large print Giveth and the small print Taketh Away.”

    After clicking on the “Terms and Conditions” in the fine print of

    we learn on the last page of many that “2 and 3 wheeled vehicles are ineligible”. ????

    We need to do a little lobbying here in NJ to get that revised.

      Thanks for looking into it Harry. Hopefully Steve & friends are working on getting the Aptera included into the regular family of vehicles instead of the government considering these to be dune buggies and the like.

      It seems that the funding for the program ended in September. I just sent an email to asking them to include 2 and 3 wheel vehicles into the new 2022 funding. If anyone else is from NJ, please send an email and request the same.

      The Charge Up New Jersey Program has been successful for the second year in a row, with allocated funding expected to dwindle by the end of the week. The deadline to order, purchase, or lease an eligible electric vehicle is 9:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 15, 2021.

      Dealerships will have until 8:00 p.m. ET on October 15, 2021 to submit incentive applications for eligible vehicles. The cut-off date ensures that all eligible customers who are due an incentive have the opportunity to have their incentive reserved and then applied at the point-of-sale once the vehicle is delivered.

        Well, it looks like ChargeUp are only the administrators of the Program and we will have to address our request somewhere else.

        Thank you for your email. As only administrators of the Charge Up New Jersey program, and we must adhere to the terms and conditions set by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with your inquiry.

    Three wheel vehicles aren’t eligible for the Federal credit either.

      Thanks for going the extra mile researching this Harry. The devil is always in the details. If it looks to good to be true, it is usually not true.


      But given some time and effort in states with these caveats we can get it changed before delivery ramps up

        Aptera will need to lobby Congress to get three wheeler’s covered if and when they change the tax credit. They won’t get any help from the Biden administration which is only interested in the UAW, not electrification. Biden is hostile to startups because they are disrupters which are bad for unions because it’s bad for old industrial companies which employ union members. Biden’s proposal gave an extra $2500 for cars from union companies and his EV summit only included GM, Ford and Stelantis (which doesn’t make any EVs just a couple of minimal range plugins and isn’t even an American company, it’s Dutch). They deliberately snubbed Tesla (the world’s largest producer of EVs) as well as every other startup such as Rivian, Lucid and Aptera.

    Rebates are completely different than a tax credit

    This is the way to go , the so called tax credit only helps those who OWE money to the government at the end of the year.

    A rebate helps everyone

      Patrick, not sure if you were part of this conversation, but your statement sounds and makes it sound like, you only get the benefit from the bill, if when April 14th (Or the adjusted date for next year.) comes around and you file your taxes, you’ve been paying your taxes in advance all year based on what you would likely owe. What you normally owe or get refunded when you file isn’t really a part of the equation here. You find your final federal tax debt when you file first, then you apply the credit, now you get a new figure for what the feds should have gotten from you, if it’s more than what you owe you get the difference back.

      If it’s a non-refundable credit (a foolish and misleading name.) you get either the $7500 or whatever you owed in taxes as a payment, whichever is smaller. If it’s a refundable credit, you get the $7500 period.

      For 2021 if you had an adjusted total earned income of $55,000 your fed taxes would be $7848 and if the credit was approved and in the law you would get a full $7500 payment. (Different tax rates would apply for other types of income: investments, etc.)

        That first sentence should read “If you were part of this conversation elsewhere.” Obviously you were part of the conversation here.
