Scrappage Incentive Program
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 Scrappage Incentive program.
Recycle your old gas car and replace it with a used electric car to receive $1,000 off your purchase. The Scrappage Incentive stacks with the existing Used EV Incentive program, which qualifies all Ontario drivers for $1,000 off the purchase of a used fully electric or plug-in hybrid electric car. Combined, that’s up to $2,000 in incentives for buying a used fully electric or plug-in hybrid electric car.
1. You must be eligible for, and apply to, the Used EV Incentive program.
2. You must scrap an old internal combustion engine driven vehicle that is operable and insured in Ontario.
We prefer that you pursue the Used EV Incentive first. That is, attending an EV 101 seminar, test driving an EV at the EV Discovery Centre or an EV Roadshow event and buying a used EV within up-to one year of attending the seminar. That way you are scrapping your car at the same time as buying your used EV.

How do I Scrap My Car?
Scrapping your old gas car is easy and sustainable. All you need to do is follow these steps:
Step 1: Visit carheaven.ca and select “Donate a Vehicle” from the main menu.
Step 2: Follow the website prompts to enter the requested information about your car, such as VIN, year, make, model, odometer reading, etc.
Step 3. When prompted to select a charity, choose “pndscrappage” from the list. If you do not select “pndscrappage” you will not be eligible for the $1,000.
Step 4: Wait for Car Heaven to contact you to arrange a date, time and place for them to pick up your car.
