EV and related incentives are ever changing. Here is what we know about. If we have missed anything, or if details have changed, please comment below and we will update as necessary.
Federal EV Incentive:
In 2019, the Federal Government launched an incentive program for eligible EV/PHEVs. As the list of vehicles is constantly changing, please visit Transport Canada’s page for the most up to date information.
In 2022 the program was updated, with additional funding to last until 2025.
- A car must have a base model Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price that is less than $55,000. Higher priced versions of these vehicles, up to a maximum Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $65,000, are also eligible.
- Larger zero-emission vehicles (e.g., sports utility vehicles, minivans and pick-up trucks) must have a base model Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price under $60,000. Higher priced versions of these vehicles, up to a maximum of $70,000, are also eligible.
Larger battery vehicles will receive an incentive of $5,000, while those with smaller batteries will receive $2,500.
Dealers will reduce the vehicle by the incentive price – you, the consumer, will have no additional paperwork and will receive the savings immediately.
Provincial EV Incentive:
There is no provincial incentives available for Albertans at this time. If you want that to change (as we do), please contact your local MLA.
Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program
Alberta Municipalities do have funding available for EV/PHEV and charger installations (oh and electric Zamboni’s to boot!). Details can be found at mccac.ca.
Municipality Specific Incentives
While we have none listed at this time, we may have missed details about a specific incentive. Please contact us if you are aware of any.
Utility Provider Incentives
FortisAlberta customers can sign up for the EV Smart Charging Pilot through Optiwatt. Optiwatt is offering a total of $150 in rewards for joining the pilot program (see links for details).
