Used Electric Vehicle Incentive
Ontario drivers qualify for $1,000 toward the purchase of a used fully electric car. This incentive does not include plug-in hybrids. The car must be registered and insured in Ontario, be for personal-use and have a re-sale sticker price below $50,000 CDN before taxes.
Step One: Attend a Used EV Seminar
This seminar is free to attend and provides an overview of Canada’s EV industry, the advantages of electric transportation and things to watch out for when shopping for a used EV.
Step Two: Purchase a used EV
You can purchase your EV from any country, province, website, dealership or private seller, so long as it is registered and insured in Ontario. It does not matter in what order you purchase your used EV and attend the seminar, so long as both are done within one year of each other.
Step Three: Claim Your Incentive
Email a copy of the following documents to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Bill of Sale
- Proof of Insurance
- Vehicle Registration
- Seminar Certificate (This gets emailed to you after you attend the seminar)
The name of the person applying for the incentive must be present on all four documents. Married couples are not exempt from this requirement.
