This EV Raffle is Your Best Chance to Win a Rivian or Tesla

Why buy an electric car when you could win one? Climate XChange’s seventh annual EV Raffle gives you the chance to fully customize a Rivian or Tesla, and there’s only one month left to enter.

Here are eight reasons why Climate XChange’s EV Raffle is the best choice – for you and for the planet:

1. Largest prize pool value of any EV lottery

We offer the highest prize pool of any EV lottery out there. The winner of the Grand Prize gets to design their own dream Rivian or Tesla – two of the most advanced EV brands in the world. You can choose any model vehicle, including the Tesla Model X Plaid or the Rivian R1S SUV, with the features you want. Has an electric car from another manufacturer caught your eye? We’re also offering an alternative grand prize of $100,000 that can be used to buy the electric car of your dreams.

After factoring in the value of the car, taxes and fees (all paid by us!), the total grand prize is worth more than $250,000. That’s 1,000 times the price of your ticket!

2. We save you thousands in tax

Did you know that you have to pay federal and state taxes on any prize you win in a raffle, sweepstakes or lottery? So when you win a prize worth as much as this, you could be on the hook for a lot of money. This includes winning a physical prize, like a car – you may have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to drive off in your prize.

But in our raffle, we’ve got you covered. If you win, we’ll take care of all the taxes for you. The exact amount depends on the car you choose, but we’ll pay up to $85,000 in taxes to make sure you drive away in the car of your dreams and owe nothing.

3. Your odds are really good

We sell a maximum of 5,000 tickets in our raffle. Many other contests and lotteries sell as many tickets as possible, but this lowers your odds of winning. As our draw has a lower ticket limit, even if we are sold out, you are guaranteed a 1:5000 chance of winning our top prize. In addition, we have cash prizes for 2nd-5th. space, so your chances of becoming a winner are even greater.

Right now we’ve only sold around 2,500 tickets, and with a month to go until our draw, your odds of winning have never been better!

4. We have additional cash prizes

Even if you’re not the lucky Grand Prize winner, that doesn’t mean you have to walk away empty-handed. We will continue our raffle with cash prizes for the 2nd-5th. the space, money that can go to anything – even to help buy your own electric car! The cash prizes are:

2nd prize


3rd prize


4th prize


5th prize


5. No Catch-22s

The grand prize winner can choose any Rivian or Tesla they want, period. Climate XChange does not limit your options to specific models or functions. You get to fully customize everything about your dream car. It’s that simple.

We also guarantee that our top prize is what we say it is, with no tricky fine print. Some draws may change what their grand prize is if they do not meet a minimum amount of ticket sales. And while we hope to sell out no matter how many tickets we sell, we’ll be giving away a fully customized Rivian or Tesla electric vehicle, and you’ll pay nothing to drive it home.

6. We’ve been doing this for a while

We’ve been raffling off electric vehicles since 2015 to fund our critical work. Climate XChange has a track record of helping people choose, order and drive home in their dream cars; you can see our previous winners here.

While we’ve only raffled off Teslas in the past, this year we heard from previous entrants who were interested in winning other electric cars. That’s why we expanded our prize pool to also include Rivians R1S and R1T. Our $100,000 Alternate Grand Prize can also be used to purchase any of the exciting electric cars hitting the market today. As a nonprofit, our raffle proceeds fund our work, and one of our board members spoke to Business Insider about how the latest Tesla news has influenced this year’s fundraiser.

7. It is straightforward and transparent

Our draw is straightforward and transparent, especially in the care we take to fairly draw our winners. We print each ticket and live stream the draw (from loading our raffle drum with tickets to drawing our winners) so you can feel confident that the winners were selected fairly. To earn your trust, we also hire independent auditors to monitor the raffle and ensure that every ticket purchased is actually in the raffle.

8. You help states pass climate policy

The United States is not on track to meet its climate goals, and the transportation industry is more than responsible 25 percent of the country’s total emission of greenhouse gases. Light vehicles, like passenger cars, account for more than half of the transport sector’s emissions. Government actors across the country are working to electrify our transport system, but we need to act quickly to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change.

It is critical that states have effective policies in place not only to support cleaner transportation, but to advance climate solutions across all sectors of our economy. Climate XChange’s team is dedicated to make these policies a reality by equipping climate actors with data and resources to enact legislation and facilitate cooperation between states. All proceeds from our EV Raffle help fulfill our mission and put another electric vehicle on the road. Our work would not be possible without the support of our raffle participants.

By purchase of a lottery ticketnot only do you have the chance to win a brand new, fully loaded Rivian or Tesla, but you’re also investing in a vibrant future for generations to come.
