Quebec Extends Plug-In Vehicle Rebate Program For Three More Years (Update)
Last month, Quebec Natural Resources Minister Martine Ouellet stated that the province’s plug-in vehicle rebate program (up to $8,000 per EV purchase/lease) will be extended for at least three more years. (updated)
The rebate program definitely drives sales of plug-ins in Quebec. It’s the EV hotbed of Canada.
The extension slots into Quebec’s $516-million electrification of transportation plan, which includes a goal of getting at least 12,500 additional EVs on its roads by 2017 and having up to 10,000 chargers across the province.
Today there are approximately 2,000 plug-in vehicles registered in Quebec. A detailed list of the rebate amounts for plug-ins registered in Quebec is available online at this link.
Also note that separately there is a petition to introduce a CARB-ZEV like bill which would set a minimum threshold of electric vehicles to be sold in the province.
