The Federal Tax Rebate is based on vehicle's traction battery capacity and the gross vehicle weight rating. The gross weight of the Premium is 4365 lbs but is 71.4 kilowatts the traction battery capacity?

o be certified for the credit by the manufacturer, the vehicle must meet the following requirements:

  • The vehicle must be made by a manufacturer (i.e., it doesn't include conventional vehicles converted to electric drive).
  • It must be treated as a motor vehicle for purposes of title II of the Clean Air Act.
  • It must have a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of not more than 14,000 lbs.
  • It must be propelled to a significant extent by an electric motor which draws electricity from a battery which
    • has a capacity of not less than 4 kilowatt hours and
    • is capable of being recharged from an external source of electricity.
The following requirements must also be met for a certified vehicle to qualify:

  • The original use of the vehicle commences with the taxpayer—it must be a new vehicle.
  • The vehicle is acquired for use or lease by the taxpayer, and not for resale. (The credit is only available to the original purchaser of a new, qualifying vehicle. If a qualifying vehicle is leased to a consumer, the leasing company may claim the credit.)
  • The vehicle is used mostly in the United States.
  • The vehicle must be placed in service by the taxpayer during or after the 2010 calendar year.

I live in New York State and visited the website for NYSERDA, the state's energy department. They have a list of eligible EVs to get up to $2,000 in tax credits (the ID 4 gets this) but the Solterra is not yet listed. The Crosstrek is the only one.

The Federal Tax Rebate
Just to be clear, it's a tax credit, but not "refundable". What that means is that the benefit goes against tax liability, but only up to the amount of tax actually owed if the credit is more than your tax liability for the tax year.
