Quebec to phase out $7,000 EV rebate program by 2027

Quebec is phasing out its substantial $7,000 incentive for electric vehicle (EV) purchases, even as the province’s Roulez-Vert program has proven to be extremely successful in accelerating EV adoption in the province.

Quebec’s government, under the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) party, announced in its 2024-2025 budget this week that the Roulez Vert program, known for providing the highest EV purchase rebates in Canada, will gradually be phased out over the next few years.

Starting in 2025, rebates for battery-powered electric vehicles (BEVs) will be reduced from $7,000 to $4,000, and incentives for plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) will drop from $5,000 to $2,000.

The cuts will continue in 2026, with BEVs receiving $2,000, and PHEVs $1,000.

Finally, the subsidies will be entirely phased out by January 1, 2027, leaving prospective EV buyers to rely solely on any remaining federal incentives, which is funded with $587 million through to March 2025.

Currently, the Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) and Long Range (LR) variants of the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y are all eligible for the provincial incentive.

This decision to phase out the rebate program was made even as the Quebec government has an ambitious goal to increase its ZEV fleet to two million by 2030. The province currently boasts approximately 240,000 registered BEVs and PHEVs, indicating a significant challenge ahead in achieving this tenfold increase without local financial incentives. (via
