Commercial and Fleet Charging Stations
- In order to encourage the adoption of ZEVs by Canadians and Canadian businesses, the Government of Canada launched the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) Program in May 2019. There are many different makes and models of eligible zero-emission vehicles for purchase or lease that provide consumers with iZEV Program incentives of up to $5,000.
- Natural Resources Canada offers the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program. NRCAN has granted over $40M to 22 Third-Party Delivery Organizations to distribute a component of the ZEVIP funding to Ultimate Recipients (applicants) to install electric vehicle charging infrastructure projects in public places, on-street, in multi-unit residential buildings, at workplaces or for light-duty vehicle fleets. Applicants to these organizations may be able to receive up to $5,000 per Level 2 port and/or up to $75,000 per DCFC station, with a max of $100,000 per applicant. The 22 organizations that have been granted funding can be found HERE.
- The federal iZEV Program provides a point-of-sale incentive for the purchase or lease of eligible electric vehicles. Consumers can get an incentive of up to $5000 for new battery-electric or longer range plug-in hybrid vehicles (at least 15kWh), and up to $2500 for shorter range plug-in vehicles. Eligible vehicles include new vehicles with six seats or fewer that have a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) less than $45,000 (with a cap of $55,000 for higher-trim versions), and new vehicles with seven or more seats that have an MSRP of $55,000 (with a cap of $60,000 for higher-trim versions).Incentives are limited to one per individual per calendar year. Businesses and provincial and municipal governments are limited to 10 incentives in a calendar year. Please check website for details on related tax write-offs eligibility for businesses.
The Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) Program is continuing until March 31, 2025 (or until available funding is exhausted).
