PROVINCIAL REBATES - British Columbia

Residents, businesses, non-profit organizations, and local government organizations are eligible to receive a provincial rebate of up to $3,000 when leasing or buying a new electric vehicle in BC.

The rebates are as follows:

$3,000 for purchase or lease of a new battery electric vehicle (BEV/EV).

$1,500 for purchase or lease of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).

At Kia Victoria, when you purchase an eligible vehicle, you will receive the rebate at the point of sale. We show you the rebate upfront and will handle all the paperwork for you.

 

Which vehicles qualify for the rebate?

The BC Ministry of Energy and Mines has established incentive amounts based on vehicle type and battery capacity. Battery electric vehicles (BEVs or EVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) with an electric range of 85 km or greater are eligible for the full incentive amount up to $3,000. Plug-in hybrids with an electric range of less than 85 km are eligible for incentives up to $1,500.

As of June 22, 2019, vehicles with an MSRP of more than $55,000 are not eligible for the incentive.

SCRAP-IT

The BC SCRAP-IT program offers incentives up to $6000 to use towards the cost of an EV or other low-carbon form of transportation when you scrap your existing gas-powered vehicle.

Details

Incentives range from $3000 for a used EV, up to $6000 for a new EV. Each January, participating dealerships like KIA Victoria are allocated a limited number of incentive packages for their customers. Unlike other rebates, the incentives apply to purchases of both new and used EVs.

Only a limited number of SCRAP-IT incentives are awarded each year. Once they're gone, they're gone. And then tend to go quickly.

At Kia Victoria, when you purchase an eligible vehicle, you will receive the rebate at the point of sale. We show you the rebate upfront and will handle all the paperwork for you.
