Conditions respecting used vehicles

Notice – Addition of used vehicles to the Roulez vert Program

Used vehicles have been eligible for the Roulez vertprogram since April 1, 2019. However, some of the conditions applicable to vehicles registered on or after April 18, 2019 differ from those set out in the used electric vehicle pilot program, which ended on March 31, 2019.

Vehicles registered on or after April 18, 2019:

  • no longer need to be covered by a warranty of at least three years or 40,000 km from the date of registration in the applicant’s name;
  • no longer need to have undergone a full inspection and have been certified by an automaker or an independent car dealer;
  • must still be inspected to assess the battery’s residual capacity.

The website will be updated in the coming days to reflect these changes.

To be eligible for a rebate, the used vehicle must:

List of eligible vehicles

Here is the list of used vehicles eligible for a rebate under the pilot project and the amount of the rebate for each model.

Make sure that the vehicle that you plan to purchase or lease is an eligible model that complies with the other conditions under the pilot project.

Purchase or lease

The applicant can purchase or lease the used vehicle.

Special conditions respecting leasing

Amount of the rebate

The maximum rebate for an eligible used all-electric vehicle is $4 000. The amount may be smaller depending on the manufacturer’s suggested retail price and the leasing conditions, as the case may be.

The rebate granted for a used vehicle is calculated to be equal to 50% of the rebate that would be offered under the Roulez électrique Program for the same model of vehicle were it purchased new.

Only one rebate can be attributed per vehicle under the pilot project and the vehicle must remain registered in Québec for at least 12 months if it is acquired for personal use and for at least 36 months if it is purchased for a vehicle fleet (three or more vehicles).

To obtain additional information

How to proceed

You can obtain the rebate granted under the pilot project from your car dealer. If your dealer does not offer you the rebate on your contract, you can submit your application directly to us.

The pilot project is also offered to businesses, organizations and municipalities. If you are not an individual, please consult the section reserved for businesses and municipalities.

The pilot project

Transition énergétique Québec is responsible for the pilot project. The TEQ Board of Directors approved the normative framework of the pilot project on May 9, 2017.

Since then, various modifications have been made to the conditions governing participation.
