Sad news today in Ontario – the new PC government have officially ended the electric and hydrogen vehicle incentive program, including the charging incentive.
Applications will be accepted from dealerships, car owners or prospective car owners only if one of the following conditions has been met:
- Eligible vehicles that have been delivered to consumers, registered, and plated on or before July 11 will receive the incentive.
- Inventory that dealers have on lots or orders made by dealerships with manufacturers on or before July 11, will also be honoured for the incentive provided that the vehicle is delivered to consumers, registered, and plated by September 10.
In addition, the Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Program is cancelled effective July 11. Charging stations purchased and/or installed before this date will be eligible to receive incentives if the application is submitted within 60 days of July 11.
While this will set back sales in the short term, we are confident that EV’s are still on target to reach sales records, despite the removal of incentives.
