In the coming weeks, Nissan will be launching a program to support Quebec’s pilot project for used electric vehicles.
The Government of Quebec recently announced a pilot project for used electric vehicles. The project, which goes into effect April 1st, provides cash incentives for Quebec residents who purchase a previously-owned electric vehicle (a first in Canada).
This means that a Nissan LEAF, for example, which is eligible for an $8,000 incentive in Quebec when new, will be eligible for a $4,000 incentive when used. In addition, those who acquire used EVs will be eligible to get a rebate when purchasing home charging stations.
“We are thrilled with the Government of Quebec’s changes to its Drive Electric Program. This solidifies the province as a leader in the field of electric mobility—by extending the accessibility and practicality of electric vehicles,” said Joni Paiva, President of Nissan Canada. “We know that Nissan LEAF owners love the benefits of driving electric—zero spending on gas, low maintenance, quick acceleration and the feeling of driving an environmentally friendly vehicle. These ownership benefits will be experienced by even more customers, thanks to the pilot project for used electric vehicles—ultimately helping move electric vehicles toward becoming the preferred source of mobility in Quebec.”
