Incentive Removal?

Hey, now I'm a complete noob when it comes to the EV game so I have no idea what all of these incentives are and all of the political talk that surrounds it. But I think, If I remember correctly, that the incentives for EVs are going to be disappearing?

If it isn't does anyone know how much of a rebate or tax credit or whatever we should potentially get for the I-Pace?

I think future incentives are going to rely heavily on the individual states. Some are charging EV drivers extra registration fees and some are taking away the incentives. Really won't know what the incentives look like.

Well now we have to factor in what could happen on a federal level depending on how the trump administration wants to attack the EV market and we have yet to see them delve deep into the automotive sector. Later this year that might happen. Hopefully they see a need for a stronger push, might mean more incentives for us.

So just hope for the best at this point and keep an ear out to see what happens I guess?

California will most likely still offer some kind of incentive as that state is one of the main driving forces behind clean vehicles. We'll have to see what the situation looks like when the I-Pace goes on sale. Hopefully, the car manufacturers will lobby the gov't to keep the incentives.

too bad those in the States can't buy an EV across the border and receive the Canadian incentives. I think BC has allocated a lot of fund for this and other countries are still offering it in the near future, especially Norway.

We might see some more incentives come out on a federal level for buying green products so that might make it easier for Canadians to purchase. But there will be many factors to it; your income, cost of product, and what ever else criteria that would apply.

I think where I am, there are good incentives from a quick google search. But you really have to look at vehicle specs as well and all of that technical stuff.

But what do vehicle specifications have to do with incentives? Just about every time i've seen some incentive the technical data never played in.

This is from what I could find at least. And a PDF link as well

The amount each car receives is based on four factors: 1. battery size, 2. number of passengers, 3. vehicle price (including trim) and 4. terms of lease.
