Potential Design, Implementation, and Benefits of a Feebate Program for New Passenger Vehicles in California

Project Area(s): 
Advanced Vehicles and Fuels

Under a project for the California Air Resources Board, TSRC is working with the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis to study the potential implementation of a vehicle “feebates” program in California. This type of program would involve a revenue-neutral incentive program, where purchasers of new vehicles with above average emissions of greenhouse gases would pay fees and those purchasing lower emitting vehicles would receive rebates. Various types of program designs are being examined by the UC team, along with potential consumer responses through TSRC-led statewide survey and focus group research. Automobile manufacturer, dealer, and consumer revenue and equity impacts are also being examined, along with interactions with other related vehicle and emissions policies.
