Not sure if there are any Canadians on here, but let me stop you if you think you'll get a federal rebate on the Taycan. Not going to happen. If you're buying an EV under $45k, then you're in luck.

How much are the rebates?

The rebates will take up to $5,000 off the cost of electric vehicles, and $2,500 off plug-in hybrids, but they apply only to cars that cost less than $45,000.

However, some $55,000 vehicles will be eligible.

What vehicles are covered under the rebates?

Nine electric cars and 12 plug-in hybrids are eligible under the incentive program, according to the federal government.

Electric vehicles

Chevrolet Bolt

Ford Focus Electric

Hyundai Ioniq Electric

Hyundai Kona Electric

Kia Niro Electric

Kia Soul Electric

Nissan Leaf

Tesla Model 3 Standard Range

Volkswagon e-Golf

Hybrid vehicle plug-ins

Audi A3 e-Tron

Chevrolet Volt

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Ford Fusion Energi

Honda Clarity PHEV

Hyundai Ioniq PHEV

Hyundai Sonata PHEV

Kia Niro PHEV

Kia Optima PHEV

Mini Cooper S E Countryman

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Toyota Prius Prime

Smart Fortwo models are also included in the program, however, the manufacturer recently announced it is discontinuing the model in the U.S. and Canadian markets citing a “declining” market.

How does it work?

The rebate program starts May 1, 2019, meaning only purchases or leases of eligible zero-emission vehicles on or after this date will qualify for the incentive program.

The incentive program applies right when you buy the car and the dealership is responsible for completing the documentation required to receive the rebate, according to the federal government.

Pre-owned zero-emissions vehicles are not eligible.

Does it work with other provincial incentive programs?

The federal rebate works in addition to any provincial zero-emissions vehicles incentive, which is currently only in British Columbia and Quebec.
