Manitoba’s launches new $4,000 EV rebate program

The Manitoba government has officially launched its electric vehicle (EV) rebate program, offering substantial rebates on both new and used EV purchases. Under the rules of the program, Model 3 and Model Y purchases are eligible for the rebate, with the rebate even being backdated to August 2023.

Under the new program, Manitobans can receive a $4,000 rebate on new qualifying EV purchases and a $2,500 rebate on used qualifying EV purchases. This program, funded with $25 million, covers vehicles purchased on or after August 1, 2023, and will run until March 2026.

As we previously reported, the rebate is applicable to vehicles bought or leased from Manitoba dealerships, with a maximum manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $70,000 for new vehicles, and a purchase price of up to $70,000 for used vehicles.

The good news is that Tesla does have a physical location in Winnipeg, so all variants of the Model 3 and Model Y qualify for the rebate.

In even better news, even though the Tesla Winnipeg location only opened earlier this year, the government says new Tesla vehicles purchased outside of Manitoba between August 1, 2023, and May 2, 2024, also qualify, provided they meet the price caps above.

The Manitoba rebate can be stacked with the federal $5,000 iZEV rebate, adding up to a potential total of $9,000 in rebates now available to residents in the province.

Manitoba Hydro is also contributing to helping shift Manitobans to EVs, offering financing programs for the installation of Level 2 EV chargers at homes.

Manitobans can apply for the rebate through the province’s website.
