Laval, First City in Canada to Offer an EV Purchase Rebate

Published on April 20, 2018 in Electric by Michel Deslauriers

The city of Laval, Quebec, proclaims itself as the first to offer its citizens a rebate towards the purchase of an electric motor vehicle. The announcement was made today at the Montreal Electric Vehicle Show, which runs from April 20 to 22.

Starting today, residents of Laval will benefit from a financial aid of $2,000 when they purchase an EV, and $400 towards the purchase of an electric-assist bicycle.

The $2K rebate will be tacked onto the $8,000 already offered by the Quebec government, which obviously means a total financial aid of $10,000 for the purchase of an EV. To be admissible, the vehicle must be purchased or financed, but not leased. In addition, the retail price of the vehicle can't exceed $60,000, although that amount excludes taxes as well as freight and delivery charges.

In comparison, the government of Ontario offers a rebate varying from $11,000 to $14,000 on fully electric vehicles, while the government of British Columbia offers a rebate of $5,000 (the latter applied before calculating sales taxes).
