Frequently Asked Questions

Is this really free money?

Yes – you will receive grant money that is paid directly to a dealership to secure your purchase of an EV

Does the grant cover the total cost of an EV?

No.  But it will provide significant financial help.

If I fill out the application and I am accepted, am I obligated to continue with the program?

No.  You may back out any time as long as you have not accepted your grant.

Do you offer financing for the part of the cost not covered by the grant?
No. But you are welcome to use your preferred banking institution.
Don’t EV’s run out of charge?
They can – but there are many charging stations in Boston. Most drivers arrange their charging time around break time.
Will I need to buy gas?
NO! These vehicles do not use any gas for power.
How will I know about incentives?
That’s where Wayfor comes in! When you are in the program we feed you all the information you need to get the most out of the program.
