The CEV Program is intended to build on British Columbians’ awareness and knowledge from the previous CEV Program and further develop the marketplace for electric and hydrogen vehicles in British Columbia. The purpose of this incentive program is to continue to encourage clean energy vehicle deployment and technology innovation in British Columbia. The vision for the CEV Program is to stimulate the market such that by 2020 5% of new vehicle purchases in British Columbia are clean energy vehicles and to create training, job and economic development opportunities in the clean transportation sector in British Columbia.
The vehicle incentive in the CEV Program enables the purchaser or lessee of an eligible vehicle to receive a point of sale vehicle incentive of up to $5,000 (additional up to $1,000 for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles for fuelling). The incentive amounts will be reviewed yearly to determine if they are appropriate for the marketplace. BC Ministry of Energy and Mines reserves the right to adjust the incentive amounts as necessary based on market performance; the incentive may decline each 12 month period of the program.
Clean Energy vehicles included in this program include light duty vehicles that use hydrogen or electricity as their primary fuel source. This program benefits the citizens of British Columbia by providing immediate emission reductions and stimulating development and deployment of the next generation of clean energy vehicles. The program provides incentives for British Columbia purchasers or lessees of clean energy vehicles, including
Dates for additional incentives will be posted as new eligible vehicle models are approved by the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines. Specific incentive amounts for each eligible vehicle model is included on the program webpage www.CEVforBC.ca.
