Used Electric Vehicle Incentive
Get $1,000 Off Your Used EV Purchase
The used electric vehicle (EV) marketplace is on the rise. Plug’n Drive, in collaboration with Clean Air Partnership, and made possible thanks to the support of the M. H. Brigham Foundation, brings you the Used EV Incentive program. All Ontario drivers qualify for $1,000 off a used fully electric or plug-in hybrid electric car with a re-sale sticker price below $50,000 CDN that was purchased on or after April 14, 2019. To qualify for the incentive, you need to complete the following steps:
Step One: Attend a Used EV Incentive Seminar
This seminar is free to attend and takes approximately one hour. It covers the basics behind Canada’s electric vehicle industry, the advantages of electric transportation and what to look for when shopping for a used electric car.
Until further notice, all Used EV Incentive seminars are only being offered via webinar. Please visit our events calendar to see upcoming seminars and to register.
Step Two: Take an EV Test Drive
The test drive component has been temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Step Three: Purchase a Used EV
All used fully electric and plug-in hybrid electric cars with a re-sale sticker price below $50,000 CDN qualify. You can purchase your EV from any country, province, website, dealership or private seller. It does not matter in what order you attend the Used EV seminar and purchase your car, so long as the purchase is made on or after April 14, 2019 and within up-to one year of attending the seminar.
