The Canadian province of Ontario has made changes to its Electric Vehicle Incentive Program (EVIP), which has been renamed the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program:
- Incentives of up to $14,000 Canadian ($11,000 US) will be provided for eligible hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
- Incentives for EVs and PHEVs are now determined based on each vehicle’s electric range and seating capacity. The updated incentives vary from $5,000 ($3,900 US) to $14,000.
- Incentives will no longer be provided for EVs or PHEVs with an MSRP of $75,000 ($58,500 US) or more.
- Incentives will no longer be provided for vehicles leased for less than three years.
The EVIP Eligible Vehicle and Incentives List offers a listing of updated incentive values. The Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program Guide provides full details about the various incentives available.
