Replace Your Ride Program

The Replace Your Ride (RYR) program is about replacing your elderly, high-polluting ride with a younger vehicle or upgrading to a hybrid or electric vehicle (EV). 

Ontario Hyundai is here to help you get into a newer vehicle at a lower cost and is a proud participant in the free Replace Your Ride program in partnership with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD). Residents of the AQMD, including Los Angeles City, Ontario, Montclair, Pomona, Fontana, Eastvale, Orange County, and metropolitan areas of Riverside, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino counties, may be eligible for up to $9,500 to replace their existing older car with a newer, more efficient vehicle including those that get over 35 MPGs, plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs), hybrids, and zero emissions vehicles like fully electric cars (EVs) and hydrogen cell cars.   

The RYR program has helped to contribute to a healthier and more sustainable environment for the community.

How does this program work?

The program is a voucher incentive and not a rebate. The Replace Your Ride program is the opportunity to receive an incentive to purchase a newer and more fuel-efficient model from participating dealerships, like Ontario Hyundai. Our specialist here at Ontario Hyundai can assist you through the process, giving you access to the maximum funds available for a zero-emission replacement vehicle. New cars and used cars from 2017 to 2024 can qualify. 



The RYR program has successfully incentivized individuals to replace their old vehicles with cleaner alternatives. Since its inception, the program has helped thousands of individuals in the South Coast AQMD region to upgrade their rides, resulting in a significant reduction in emissions and improved air quality.
