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.

The link to see the rebates by model is wrong in the story. The following link will lead you there. http://vehiculeselectriques.gouv.qc.ca/english/rabais.asp

Thanks for mentioning that! /fixed now

Funny that the Spark EV is listed but not the ELR…

Actually, from Jan. 1st 2014 to Dec 31st 2016, that’s … 3 years more years, not two like the title implies.

Seems like in both Ontario and Québec, the Volt is the standard bearer for Plug-in rebates. Any EV with lesser range than a Volt is not granted a full rebate. Does this rule apply elsewhere?

Actually, Marc, rebates are based on battery size, not range.
16Kw is the minimum size to get full rebates of $8000.
