Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program Cancelled

Following the decision by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program, John Yakabuski, Minister of Transportation, issued the following statement: "Ontario cancelled the cap and trade program to bring gas prices down and help lower costs for Ontario families and businesses. As a result, on July 11, 2018, the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program was cancelled.

The Court has rendered its decision. The ministry will abide by the court's decision and I have directed the ministry to expand the wind-down process for the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program.

Incentives will be provided as long as the following conditions are met:

• Eligible vehicles were delivered, registered, and plated on or before July 11th; or,
• Eligible vehicles were on dealer lots in Ontario - or on order by dealers or by customers directly from manufacturers on or before July 11th, and delivered to customers, registered and plated on or before September 10, 2018. These vehicles must be on the ministry approved order list from dealers and manufacturers.
• Applications must be submitted within 90 days of vehicle registration, plating and delivery.

Ending the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program could save Ontario taxpayers up to an estimated $1 billion over four years.
