Santa Ana Vehicle Incentive Program (VIP): Residents and Businesses Receive $500 towards Vehicle Purchases and Leases

On March 19, 2019, the Santa Ana City Council approved the Vehicle Incentive Program (VIP) to incentivize Santa Ana residents and businesses to shop local. Effective April 1, 2019, Santa Ana residents and businesses may receive $500 towards the purchase or lease of a new or used vehicle from participating Santa Ana auto dealers.

“We want to encourage our residents to shop in Santa Ana,” said Mayor Miguel Pulido. “The Vehicle Incentive Program is a component of the Shop Local initiative, aimed at keeping sales tax dollars in Santa Ana for the benefit of our residents. This rebate will also offset one of the most expensive purchases made by our residents.”

To take advantage of this offer, residents and businesses may visit one of the participating auto dealers listed below. The $500 rebate will be applied directly to the final sales contract at the dealership. Participating auto dealers include:

  1. Audi South Coast – 1425 Auto Mall Drive, Santa Ana, CA

  3. Crevier Mini – 1455 Auto Mall Drive, Santa Ana, CA
