Ontario adds price cap to EV incentive program

Canada (Nicolas Raymond)

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.

    I followed the link and downloaded the pdf file but it would not open with the latest pdf reader that comes with Linux Mint (current version with all updates). My natural paranoia just got kicked up another notch.
    What is so special that this could not be available as a plain ascii text file or at least a plain pdf file that any pdf reader could handle ?
