Credits range from $2,500 to $7,500 for battery-electric and plug-in hybrid passenger cars, based on the size of the battery pack.

The minimum pack size is 4 kilowatt-hours, and the scale runs from 4 kWh to 16 kWh (or more). For example:

  • 2012-2015 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid: $2,500
  • 2013-2016 Ford Fusion Energi & C-Max Energi: $4,007
  • 2011-2016 Chevrolet Volt, Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, others: $7,500

The IRS has updated lists so I will see if they have anything on a 2016 Prius

If you rate in a positive way (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES) I am credited with responding. It adds nothing to your costs but it assists me.
