This bill provides an exemption from the State sales and use tax for sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles. Under current law, a vehicle may be exempt from the State sales and use tax if it qualifies as a "zero emission vehicle," which, generally, means a motor vehicle that does not release evaporative emissions from its fuel system during operation. This bill extends the State sales and use tax exemption to include plug-in hybrid vehicles. The term "plug-in hybrid vehicle" is defined as a motor vehicle, fueled in part by an internal combustion engine, which also: (1) allows power to be delivered to the drive wheels by a battery-powered electric motor or other mechanical device; (2) has a battery or other mechanical storage device that can be recharged by connecting the vehicle to an electric power source; and (3) has the ability to travel at least five miles powered substantially by electricity or other form of mechanical power other than an internal combustion engine. The Commissioner of Environmental Protection would certify the make and model of all vehicles that qualify as a "plug-in hybrid vehicle." By extending the sales tax exemption to cover plug-in hybrid vehicles, this bill provides an economic incentive for New Jersey residents to purchase vehicles that limit the amount of emissions and pollutants released into the atmosphere and our communities.
