It’s not surprising that BC and Quebec are the front runners when it comes to EV adoption, as both provinces provide additional incentives on top of the federal iZEV rebate. BC offers an additional $3,000 off the purchase of qualifying vehicles, while Quebec offers an additional $5,000 rebate. In BC, there are also additional incentives for installing EV chargers in your home, including Tesla’s Wall Charger.
