Eligible used vehicles

The following used cars from the United States are not eligible because the original new car warranty is not honoured when the vehicle is transferred to Canada:

  • Kia
  • Mitsubishi
  • Mercedes-Benz (Smart)
  • Volkswagen

Only 2019 and 2020 all-electric vehicles that are covered by the original new vehicle warranty honoured in Québec, such as the coverage that applies to the battery, are now eligible.

Applicants must also comply with the other conditions respecting the vehicle. Please consult the FAQ if you have questions.

Rebate amount for eligible used vehicles

Effective July 1, 2022, the rebate for a used electric vehicle is $3,500.

Transition period

The previous rebate amount, which was $4,000, will be granted if the used vehicle is registered in your name by June 30, 2022. It is the vehicle registration date that is used to determine the rebate.

BMW i3

Note: the BMW i3 Range Extender (REX) is not eligible for the used vehicle rebate as it is a plug-in hybrid vehicle.
