Still doesn't say whether the rebate is taken off the taxable purchase price of the car or after taxes have been applied. My guess after all applicable taxes have been applied. Either way New Yorkers will get a nice rebate. Nice that you won't need to wait for check to be cut by the state. Here in NJ there is no sales tax but only ZEVs qualify, cars like the Volt or any PHEV do not get the tax exemption.

Interesting if you look at the link on how it works, Tesla owners will only get a $500.00 rebate, Volt 2016 and up $1,700 and of course the Bolt is the only qualified vehicle that will get the full $2,000.00

It does say it comes off at the dealer. Note the BOLT is only 119 emiles rated but they claim it still gets 2k off if you click on the plus sign. Go figure. The cutoff to get 1700 wa 119 emiles
Rebate is very easy: simply purchase a qualifying electric car from a participating dealer, and a discount of up to $2,000 will be applied when you pay. Combine that with a Federal Tax Credit of up to $7,500, and it’s an opportunity you wouldn’t want to miss.

I think you're confusing MPGe and range rating. The Bolt EV gets the $2,000 because it has an EPA-rated all-electric range of 238 miles, which exceeds the 120 mile all-electric range requirement for a full rebate.

Presently, the Bolt is the only one qualifying for the full rebate, because the only other EVs that meet the range requirement are Teslas, and they exceed the maximum MSRP threshold of $60,000
