IMPORTANT NOTE

This list will be updated on a regular basis; please check to make sure the car you are interested in purchasing in on the list.

All vehicles that appear on the list have been deemed eligible under the iZEV program. Eligibility, including the continuation of eligibility, remains at the Minister of Transport’s discretion.

All fees and costs related to the purchase or lease of an eligible vehicles, such as freight and delivery charges, should be comparable to those same fees and costs for other vehicles sold by the same automaker. If Transport Canada assesses that an automaker is potentially departing from standard pricing approaches to these fees/costs, Transport Canada reserves the right to withdraw a vehicle from the eligibility list.

Zero-emission vehicles help fight climate change

Transportation is the second largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada. This accounts for a quarter of Canada’s total GHG emissions and almost half of those emissions come from cars and light trucks. One way that we can reduce the amount of transportation-related GHG emissions is to get more zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the road.

A ZEV is a vehicle that has the potential to produce no tailpipe emissions. They can still have a conventional internal combustion engine, but must also be able to be operate without using it.

For example, we consider the following vehicles to be ZEVs:

  • battery-electric
  • plug-in hybrid electric
  • hydrogen fuel cell

Making zero-emission vehicles more affordable

We know that the higher cost of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) can make it more difficult to adopt this clean technology. The iZEV program and new tax write-offs for businesses will help make it more affordable.

Purchase and Lease Incentives

Effective May 1, 2019, we will provide an incentive for consumers who buy or lease an eligible ZEV.

There are two levels of incentive:

  • Battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, and longer range plug-in hybrid vehicles are eligible for an incentive of $5,000
  • Shorter range plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are eligible for an incentive of $2,500

To be eligible for the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles program, you have to purchase or lease:

  • a vehicle with six seats or fewer, where the base model (trim) Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is less than $45,000;
    • higher priced versions (trims) of these vehicles, up to a maximum Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $55,000, will also be eligible for purchase incentives;

AND

  • a vehicle with seven seats or greater, where the base model Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is less than $55,000;
    • higher priced versions (trims) of these vehicles, up to a maximum Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $60,000, will also be eligible for purchase incentives;

You will still be eligible for the incentive even if delivery, freight and other fees, such as vehicle colour and add-on accessories, push the actual purchase price over these set limits.

See Qs&As for more information.

How to receive the incentive

The purchase incentives for zero-emission vehicles will be applied to eligible vehicles purchased or leased on or after May 1, 2019. Further details will be available on our website by April 30, 2019.

The federal purchase incentive for zero-emission vehicles will be applied in addition to any provincial zero-emission vehicles incentive offered.

Only new zero-emission vehicles are eligible for the federal incentive (i.e. vehicles that have not been plated before).

The incentive can be applied to eligible leased vehicles, but will be prorated based on the length of the lease. For example, a 48-month lease is eligible for the full incentive amount for the eligible vehicle in question and a 24-month lease will be eligible for half of the incentive for that vehicle.

There a limit on how many vehicles Canadians can purchase or lease under the Program. Individuals can only get one incentive under this Program in a calendar year. Businesses and provincial and municipal governments operating fleets can only get up to 10 incentives under this Program in a calendar year.

Tax Write-Off

Businesses will be eligible for a full tax write-off on some ZEVs in the year they are put into use.

Qualifying vehicles will include:

  • battery-electric
  • plug-in hybrid electric (with a battery capacity of at least 15 kWh)
  • hydrogen fuel cell (including light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles)

Businesses, provincial, and municipal governments operating fleets can only get up to 10 incentives under this Program in a calendar year.
