Electric Vehicle Discount Program

The City of Tacoma and Tacoma Public Utilities partnered to launch an Electric Vehicle Discount Program to lower the cost of purchasing or leasing an electric car or bike in Fall 2018 in Tacoma. This was a pre-negotiated pricing program with local Tacoma dealerships and bike shops to deliver a no-hassle deal to interested buyers. For more information about this and other electric car opportunities, visit the electric vehicle web page.
