Ontario EV owners : your help is needed to make eligible EVs sold by September 10 2018
As you know, the new Ontario government decided to ”scrap” the Cap and Trade joint program with Québec and California.
On July 11 2018, the same government ended the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle and Charging Incentive Programs. Potential EV owners are disappointed as they were waiting for automobile manufacturers to deliver their electric vehicles.
Dealerships and EV owners are eligible to claim the last incentives on electric vehicles by September 10 2018 as explained on Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation’s EVIP website.
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.
Ontario’s Ministry of Finance requested that all dealerships in Ontario must provide their list of electric vehicles on their lots and purchase orders sent to manufacturers. Ministry of Finance will only accept claims for electric vehicles on those lists. Therefore, it is not possible to claim an incentive for an EV outside of Ontario.
Where are those dealerships’ lists of eligible electric vehicles ? Potential EV owners want to find an eligible EV before the deadline.
