It might soon be a great time for Californians to buy a new hybrid car.

The state will soon offer nearly $4 million in rebates for buying zero emission and plug-in hybrid cars and trucks.

The California Air Resources Board says it is part of a program to improve air quality in the state.

Under the program, buyers could get up to $5,000 for light-duty vehicles and up to $20,000 for qualified commercial vehicles.
