    Hi,

    I am considering ordering m3 but noticed that the MA state program is running out of funds Funding | MOR-EV and most likely I will not be able to qualify, so I was wondering if someone was able to get in touch with them and if their are considering extending the program.

    Thanks,
    David

    Oh man, that's a bummer. I was counting on that rebate, didn't know the funding is limited

    I have a feeling that they may add more funding just to buck the current trend of de-regulating gas guzzlers and make a statement (hopefully!)

    Haven't heard anything about more funding though.

    It’s always running out of money, and so far, they’ve always replenished it. It’s been that way for years

    That's what happened when we bought our Tesla. The funds ran out and in the next session they were replenished and we go ours.

    More importantly, federal credit gets cut in half beginning next year. Better order soon if you want to get that.

    The funding gets renewed periodically in the year and also new fiscal years. I'd expect a nearly 100% certainty that you'll get the rebate. Plus, submit it no matter what, that holds your place in line in the event funding dries up prior to getting the rebate; once replenished, the earliest applicants get the funds first.

    If you call them they will answer all of your questions. I have successfully processed three rebates with them. It takes a long time to get your money and there is no guarantee of additional funding but it has happened each fiscal year so far. If buying M3P you may only get 1,500 since the rich people cutoff is MSRP over 60k

    Thanks Raechris,

    I believe they go by list price (awd 54k <60k), the white paint, interior and adaptive crouse control are just an options so it should qualify for the full $2,500.00 rebate. I will try to call them regardless. Thanks for the input!

    It took foreverrrr to get my check. I think it may have to do with the constant running out and being refunded.

    I got my notice today that application was approved, and I see on the mor-ev site that they're funded again, with $2M on-hand.

    Unnecessary to throw in “rich people cutoff”. I have a P3 and I am not rich.

    The Bently Bentayga owner that I just burned a few days back however, IS rich. :D

    Does anyone know how this effects a performance 3 with a selling price higher than 60k? I emailed and asked if a performance model 3 qualifies and they said yes, but part of me thinks they may reject it due to the 79k sticker.

    Does Massachusetts offer any cash/credit for moving to the satte and registering a Tesla S there?

    Thank you very much

    No I don't believe so, it's only for new purchases while you are a resident.

    It shouldn't, the Model 3 Performance is a variant of Model 3. It is not a different model being made/sold by Tesla

    It would be great if that’s the case. I’m hoping the excise tax calculation is the same way, based on 35k base msrp and not the performance or awd model base msrp.
