VW TRUCK PROGRAM Rounds 1-3

 

Under the VW Truck Program, $36,255 was awarded in Round 1, $280,559.75 was awarded in Round 2, and $138,839 was awarded in Round 3. The Program provided funds to assist in the purchase of new trucks to replace old, high-emitting diesel trucks. The primary goal of the Program was to improve the air quality in the state.  SD DENR provided the rebate funding and administered the Program.  

Total rebate per replacement truck was up to 25% of a new truck with an engine certified to EPA emission standards, 35% of the purchase price of a new truck with an engine certified to meet CARB’s Low-NOx standards, or 45% of the purchase price of an all-electric truck. DENR intends to award funds to as many eligible applicants throughout the state as possible.
