They may receive a Charge Ahead voucher which can be applied at point of sale or lease at any participating dealership. Online prequalification for the purchase or lease of used eligible vehicles will debut in the future. Previously, only the Standard Rebate, which offers up to $2,500 and is available to all Oregon residents regardless of income, could be applied at participating dealerships. With the addition of the $5,000 Charge Ahead Rebate prequalified voucher, participants can now stack them to save up to $7,500 when purchasing or leasing a new vehicle at point of sale or lease.
