Does anyone know if the new lease terms announced last week exclude a new leasee from getting the $2500 CA CVRP rebate check? The contract had some vague language about not being entitled to government rebates but did not specify the $2500 one. The dealer didn't have any idea.

The lease terms are probably the same. IF Honda FIT is still listed on the CVRP website then we are eligible. I applied for mine one week before and sent my documents on Monday.

The CARB rebate is offered to "users" of ZEVs. They are different than the tax rebates offered by the Feds and the state to "buyers" of ZEVs.

In a lease, tte tax rebates accrue to the lessor, which in this case is Honda. The prior lease had the same language you are referring to.

The CARB rebate, OTOH, goes to the lessee. Still. So your rebate should be approved, no worries. Assuming, of course, that they haven't run out of money sending it to all those Leaf and Tesla drivers. :)

I did not know about this, and you got my hopes up for a $2500 windfall.
Sadly, according to this web site, the funds available for 2012-2013 are ZERO.

I leased mine on June 1 and took delivery on 6/4. Could someone please explain how I can apply for the rebate, just in case. Thanks.

I am skeptical that we will get anything out of this, but what the Hell, it's easy to submit an application.
I just did the online thing, and got a confirming Email.
Now, when they approve it, I have to do the formal submittal by mail.
