Rebates and Incentives
Electric Vehicle Rebates in British Columbia
BC’s Go Electric program provides rebates of as much as:
$3,000 for the purchase or lease of a new electric vehicle, including longer-range plug-in hybrids, and $1,500 for the purchase or lease of a shorter-range plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
Some car insurance providers offer discounts for electric vehicles, making it even more affordable to own one. For example, BCAA Optional Car Insurance provides 5% in savings through its Eco-Friendly Vehicle Discount. Learn more at bcaa.com/optionalcar.
