Electric vehicles are amazing not just because you’ll stop spending money on gas or because they help contribute to a healthy environment. If those two things weren’t enough, the government essentially gives you money to buy one! There are a couple tax exemptions and credits in Washington D.C., and we’ll explain them below. When you’re ready to come try one out, make the trip east of the Potomac River to visit your friends at Pohanka. If you’re not quite ready to drive out here but you still have some questions, let us know via the contact form below.

State Tax Credits

Buying not just electric vehicles, but any vehicle that has a fuel rating that meets or exceeds 40 MPG will allow you to exempt it from your taxes1. That’ll really come back to reward you when tax season rolls around! If you’re not exactly sure whether a vehicle is eligible for this exemption or not, visit the District of Columbia website or just talk to our experienced and knowledgeable staff. Businesses are also eligible for major tax credits if they construct alternative fuel infrastructure. For example, if you install a residential electric vehicle charging station, you’ll receive a tax credit of up to $1,0001. If this interests you or anyone you know, direct them to the Office of Tax and Revenue’s website.

Federal Tax Credits

If you purchase an electric vehicle, you're also eligible for Federal Tax Credits up to $7,500! To be more specific, you'll be eligible for a credit that ranges between $2,500 and $7,500, depending on the vehicle's size and battery capacity. This is a limited credit, which is why it's important that you consider closing a deal as quickly as possible. Once 200,000 electric vehicles have been sold, no one else will be eligible for this fantastic credit. To claim the credit, just complete IRS Form 8936, Qualified Plug-In Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit.

Searching for an Electric Vehicle

We make it so easy to find an electric vehicle at Pohanka. Click on the Search New tab above, then click on the Electric and Hybrid Vehicles link. You’ll then find yourself on a search results page, and you can continue to refine your search by using the menus on the left side of the screen. Limit your selection by various criteria like body styles, makes, colors, and more. If you’re interested in one, use the Confirm Availability, Request Information, and Get ePrice buttons to proceed in the next step. Additionally, you can take care of much of the financing process just by clicking on the Get Pre-Approved and Value Your Trade buttons to the right of a vehicle’s picture. In a few minutes, you’ll have a car loan waiting for you when you come stop by for a test drive. We'll go over the credits in person if you're confused, so don't hesitate to ask our staff any questions.

Ready to try some electric vehicles? If you have more questions about Washington D.C. and federal tax credits for electric vehicles, come to Pohanka and talk to our staff. Come by during our extended hours!

I arrived at 0700 just a little after the doors had opened and warmly greeted by Ryan Bartholomew, my Service Technician. He is a pleasure to work with and he goes the extra mile to ensure that your repairs and vehicle needs are attended to. Moreover, Ryan and I have been connected since I purchased my vehicle from Pohanka and he can ALWAYS call me by name when he sees me. I come an hour away (Bowie, MD) for the customer service, to have my 2013 Suburban cared for. Job well done Ryan and Pohanka Chevorlet!

They had the car I wanted and worked to get it to me at the price I could afford. Anuj was prompt and professional with all contact, over e-mail and in person. This is the second car I've leased from Pohanka, and I don't know why I would visit any other Chevy Dealer.

This was the fastest and best used car experience I've had. David Poole, Juan Andrade, and Hunter Bowles were all very courteous and professional. A great value on a good used car with a wonderful customer experience. I would definitely go back to this dealership!

My wife and I just bought a used car from Pohanka Chevrolet and had an excellent experience! We loved working with our manager David Poole. I called and spoke with him a couple days before we bought the car. He texted me a couple days later and we worked out the arrangements before we even went to the dealership. This was great since we live over an hour away. When we got to the dealership Juan Andrade went on a test drive with us. He was very professional. Once we decided to buy the car we got in right away to finalize the deal. Hunter Bowles, who is the finance manager, processed a registration transfer for us right there then printed out a new registration card. Thank you for a fabulous experience!!

The experience was very positive. The sales associate focused on our needs and wanted to work with us to reach an agreeable negotiated price. Was very pleased with the final negotiated sales price. At all times, the sales associate was very transparent with us and he was focused on meeting our needs. I will recommend Pohanka to friends in the market for new or used car.

Just picked up my new Blazer yesterday. My sales consultant, Anuj Bharadwaj, was great! This is the 2nd car I've bought from him and my son has also purchased a car from Anuj. He is always the ultimate, gentleman, actively listens to my concerns and doesn't pressure me on anything. I always find buying a car from him to be a pleasant experience. In addition, meeting the Business Manager, Hunter Bowles, was also a good interaction. He has wonderful customer service skills and is also pleasant to deal with. He thoroughly explained all my options for extended warranties and found me the best interest rate. I have been buying from Pohanka Chevrolet for 20 years. I do recommend this car dealership.

I came in to have 2 recalls fixed on my vehicle. I tried calling another dealership who I ended up contacting 3x and they never got back to me. I called Pohanka and they ordered the parts for me the next day. My service consultant was Adrian and he was so nice. I hate going to car dealerships as a woman because they can tell I'm totally not a car person and try to take advantage. He was really nice and made me feel very comfortable. They even offered to shuttle me to and from my house while they fixed my car! I ended up getting an oil change as well. Would def return. Thank you Adrian!

Working with Pohanka Chevrolet was a great experience and they couldn't have made the process any easier. Andrew Brunt was very attentive to what I was looking for without the high pressure sales pitch. I was able to take advantage of the employee pricing promo which allowed me to purchase a 6 yr 75000 mile extended warranty. Hunter Bowled explained all of the details of the warranty to my wife and I and was able to provide a price that we can afford. I will definitely return for my next vehicle and will tell my friends to visit as well.
