Incentives and Eligible Vehicles under the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program

The vehicles listed below are eligible for an incentive under the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program (EHVIP).

The list is updated regularly based on approved manufacturer applications.

For vehicle availability at your local dealer, please check with the vehicle manufacturers or dealers.

On March 9, 2018, the Electric Vehicle Incentive Program (EVIP) became the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program, with the following changes:

  • Incentives of up to $14,000 will be provided for eligible Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles (HFCVs);
  • Incentives for eligible battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are now determined based on each vehicle’s all-electric range and seating capacity. The updated incentives vary from $5,000 to $14,000;
  • Incentives will no longer be provided for PHEVs or BEVs with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $75,000 or more; and
  • Incentives will no longer be provided for PHEVs or BEVs leased for less than three years.

Note that incentives will be provided under the previous EVIP program for EVs ordered prior to March 9, 2018, provided that the EV is delivered and that the application is submitted by September 7, 2018.

For more detailed information about EHVIP and program requirements, please refer to the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program Guide. Please note that updated forms and guides will be available on March 12, 2018.

Also on March 9, 2018, eligibility for the Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Program (EVCIP) was expanded to include all registered EV owners who have not previously received an EVCIP incentive for their current EV.

Eligible Electric and Hydrogen Vehicles

To be eligible for an incentive,

  1. The vehicle must be on the EHVIP Eligible Vehicle and Incentive List.
  2. The vehicle must be new, not previously plated, registered, insured and roadworthy.
  3. If the vehicle is a demonstrator vehicle, it must have only been used for customer test drives at a dealership, have less than 2,000 km (unless it is an approved extended mileage demonstrator vehicle). Vehicles used for other purposes by the dealer or by the manufacturer are not eligible for an incentive.

Note: Detailed technical requirements for vehicle eligibility are identified in the Program Guide. Please note that updated forms and guides will be available on March 12, 2018.

Note: A vehicle with a model year older than those listed below would be eligible for an incentive, provided the vehicle is new. If you have any questions regarding a vehicle’s eligibility please contact the Ministry of Finance by Phone: 1 (866) 668-8297 or Fax: (905) 433-5939.

Note: Used electric vehicles are not eligible to receive an incentive but are eligible for a Green Vehicle Licence plate.
