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

The new Electric Vehicle Incentive Program (EVIP) will make it easier for Ontarians to switch to an electric vehicle.

The vehicles listed below are eligible for Ontario's Electric Vehicle Incentive Program and green licence plates. There may be other electric vehicles currently operating in Ontario as part of a pilot study or test program that do not qualify for an incentive.

Listed eligible electric vehicles are regularly updated based on approved manufacturer applications.

For vehicle availability, please check with manufacturers or dealers.

Please note the following information:
Please see the EVIP Incentive Tables below to obtain the incentive value for your eligible electric vehicle.

Incentives listed in the EVIP Incentive Tables are based on the MSRP value for each vehicle model. Incentive values will be updated for each trim level as manufacturers apply to the Ministry to update their respective vehicle models.

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)

MSRP is the base value of each model and trim level exclusive of options, taxes, pre-delivery inspection (PDI) and freight.

Note that for the incentive tables below that the values are based on information available prior to February 10, 2016. Manufacturers may apply to the Ministry to update the MSRP for their respective eligible models.

Incentive values will be updated for each trim level as updated information from manufacturers is received.

Vehicles purchased or ordered prior to February 10, 2016

If an eligible electric vehicle was purchased/leased between November 10, 2015 and February 9, 2016 with a MSRP less than $75,000 as of the date of purchase/lease, the incentive is based upon the new February 10, 2016 incentive values. Where there is an increase between the old incentive amount and the new incentive amount, the incentive difference will be paid automatically to the EVIP incentive recipient. There will not be a need to re-apply to the program if the applicant has already submitted an application.

If an eligible electric vehicle was purchased/leased with a MSRP equal to, or greater than $75,000 prior to February 10, 2016, the applicant will receive the incentive available at the time of purchase/lease. There will not be a need to re-apply to the program if the applicant has already submitted an application.  New applications must be submitted within six months of the purchase or lease date.

Existing orders for luxury vehicles where delivery is pending

Applicants have six months from the date the vehicle was purchased or leased or ordered to submit an incentive application.

  • The incentive amount will be based on the program parameters at the purchase or lease date. 
  • If, for example, a luxury vehicle that was purchased four (4) months ago was delivered today, the applicant would have two (2) months to submit their application for the incentive. 
  • Retroactive incentive amounts for vehicles that are in inventory but have not been purchased cannot be provided. 

EVIP Incentive Table for Eligible Electric Vehicles

Eligible electric vehicles must be new, not previously plated, registered, insured and roadworthy.
If the vehicle is a demonstrator electric 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 or by the manufacturer are not eligible for an incentive.

Incentives for Vehicles purchased on or After February 10, 2016

(Vehicles noted as “eligible soon” are not yet eligible for an incentive or a green plate. However, these vehicles have been approved for entry into the program and it is anticipated that they will become eligible shortly. The incentive they will receive is identified in the chart below.  Please check this chart regularly for updates)
