Hybrids/Plugin-In Electric Vehicle Credits

As a reminder, Hybrids that have both an electric engine and a gasoline engine are no longer eligible for the Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit for Tax Year 2011. Plug-In Electric Vehicles are still eligible for a credit if a qualified electric drive motor vehicle is purchased by December 31, 2011. The credit is claimed on Form 8936 (Qualified Plug-In Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit).

The Department of Energy gives a good overview of the two types of electric vehicles that qualify as well as how the credit itself is claimed:
