Tesla Model 3 becomes eligible for EV incentives of some Canadian provinces prior to deliveries
With the deliveries of the Model 3 electric vehicle (EV) to be soon commenced by Tesla Motors to customers in Canada, the EV is now one of the officially eligible vehicles for the EV incentives in some of Canadian provinces, even though there are no federal incentives available on purchase of EVs in Canada.
Tesla Motors is scheduled to start the Model 3 deliveries in Canada very soon. The move is a result of an earlier-this-year decision by the company to accelerate its planned launch of the new EV in Canada to ‘mid 2018’ instead of the previously-decided ‘late 2018.’
In the wake of the forthcoming deliveries of Model 3 in Canada, the vehicle will be one of the eligible EVs for a generous incentive of CA$14,000 in Ontario, and an incentive of CA$8,000 in Quebec.
However, while the mentioned incentive will be available on the purchase of the upcoming Tesla Model 3 EV in Canada, the incentive is no longer available to consumers who purchase Tesla’s Model S and Model X electric cars, because of a sudden change in the rules in March.
Thanks to the incentives to be available to Model 3 buyers in some provinces in Canada, the cost of the vehicle in will start at CA$31,600 before taxes, though it officially comes with a starting price of CA$45,600.
