Murphy: Electric car incentive app could be ready by June

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy says the application for a new electric vehicle incentive could be ready for consumers by the end of June. Murphy signed the legislation offering new incentives and setting lofty goals to get more electric vehicles on the road on Jan. 17, but the state is still developing an application for them. The governor's statement comes as environmental groups said they faced consumers' questions about when they could start applying for the incentives. The incentives are meant to be a one-time payment to the buyer or lessee of electric vehicles. The incentives are worth $25 per mile of electric-only range as rated by the Environmental Protection Agency. They’re worth up to a maximum of $5,000.
