BC EV Rebate Program

MSA Ford is proud to be a part of the CleanBC Go Electric Passenger Vehicle Rebate Program, British Columbia’s Point-of-Purchase Rebate Program designed to make zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) more affordable for British Columbians. Through the combined leadership of the New Car Dealers Association of BC (NCDA), the Province of British Columbia, and BC Hydro, ZEVs in BC are more accessible than ever.

About the Program

The Program is intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles in British Columbia for both their environmental and economic benefits.

The Provincial Government continued its commitment to the CleanBC Go Electric suite of programs and has continued to make considerable funding available to ensure ZEVs are more affordable and accessible to drivers. 

This funding supports financial rebates to customers who buy ZEVs, along with investments in charging and hydrogen fueling stations, education and outreach, fleet support, training, and funding to support zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles.

Businesses, non-profit organizations and local government organizations who purchase or lease qualifying new vehicles, are eligible for $3,000 off the final, after-tax vehicle price for qualifying new battery electric or hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle, longer range (over 85 kilometres of electric range) plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, and $1,500 for a shorter range plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.

Which Vehicles Qualify for the Program?

Zero-emission vehicles included in this program include Cars and Larger Vehicles that use hydrogen or electricity as their primary fuel source. The program provides rebates for British Columbia purchasers or lessees of zero-emission vehicles, including:

  • Electric vehicles (EV) which include battery electric vehicles (BEV)
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV)
  • Extended range electric vehicles (ER-EV)
  • Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV)

BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation reserves the right to adjust the rebate amounts as necessary based on market performance; the rebate may decline each 12-month period of the program.

Vehicle Rebate

The program enables the purchaser or lessee of an eligible vehicle to receive a point-of-purchase vehicle rebate. The rebate amounts will be reviewed regularly to determine if they are appropriate for the marketplace. EMLI will adjust the rebate amounts as necessary based on market performance. The rebate is applied to the purchase or lease price of a vehicle after all applicable costs and taxes have been applied.

This rebate is not part of the price negotiation process, the dealership will be required to mark down the final vehicle price by the amount of the rebate that has been approved for each zero-emission vehicle. The dealership will then submit applications to NCDA for reimbursement for the total amount of rebates provided to eligible purchasers/lessees.

Effective August 2, 2022, Cars with an MSRP of over $55,000 and Larger Vehicles with an MSRP of over $70,000 shall not be considered eligible for the rebate.
