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.

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.

Corporate incentives should be factored in as well if you work for a big company. Sony Pictures is one of them. Same goes for many other lifestyle things you get that an employer can credit you on.

Well yes because I live in Canada lol but it was just an example to show that technical specifications do play a role. So essentially if you actually do some real digging around, you could get quite a bit of money off or rebated or whatever

Some incentives may be done away with by the time the i-Pace goes on sale but more may take its place as there are still a few new ones I'm finding when it comes to the Bolt EV. That's a good place to look when it comes to current incentives.

Better check with your local city/town/state/etc. since often they'll have set expiry dates.

But fortunately those corporate should stay on much longer. Companies have more of a reason to always have these compared to local, state and federal govt

Heard that Utah legislators voted against extending tax credits for electric cars last month and Oregon won't be offering the $1,500 credit. Next on the chopping block may be Colorado's $5,000 credit.

Losing government incentives will hurt the EV segment, hopefully not enough to stop it completely.

We'll see how that changes in the coming months since there's a big push to going green, but the next time around it might incorporate other things like if you have solar panels at home + __________ + __________ = incentive

It just comes down to what they want out of us as consumers and on cutting down our carbon footprint.

But that's what I don't really get, if there's a big push, why is the government taking away the incentives. They could keep the incentives going and then revise the qualifications for them

At least California is holding steady and plans to continue their incentives program. It's not just some States, but other countries as well. Heard Denmark is phasing out their EV tax break.

It'll be interested to see how their EV sales will look for the following months after they take away that tax break.
