In an effort to scrap additional older, highly polluting vehicles in the Southland, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has launched a new incentive program to help low- and moderate- income residents purchase newer and cleaner vehicles.

Residents may be eligible to receive between $2,500 and $9,500 to purchase a newer, cleaner, more fuel-efficient vehicle depending on their income level, the vehicle model purchased and where they live. Low-income residents living in an environmentally disadvantaged area and purchasing one of the cleanest vehicles available would receive the highest incentive amount.

Qualifying participants need to:

  • Meet income requirements shown at
  • Live in the South Coast Air Quality Management District, which includes all of Orange County and major portions of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino County
  • Own a vehicle that meets program requirements.
  • Volkswagen of Downtown LA is an authorized participating dealer for the Replace Your Ride Program. 

Contact us today to see if you qualify for up to $9500 to trade in your current vehicle.
