Manitoba supports transition to electric vehicles with $25-million rebate program

July 9, 2024 | By Anthony Capkun

July 9, 2024 – Manitoba has launched a rebate program to get more Manitobans into electric vehicles.

The $25-million Manitoba Electric Vehicle Rebate program will offer a $4000 incentive on new qualifying EV purchases, and a $2500 incentive on used qualifying EV purchases (including EVs purchased on or after August 1, 2023).

To be eligible, vehicles must be purchased or leased from Manitoba dealerships with a maximum manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $70,000 for new or used EVs, with one rebate per vehicle and per owner.

New Tesla vehicles with a maximum MSRP of $70,000 purchased outside of Manitoba between August 1, 2023, and May 2, 2024, also qualify.

Both battery and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (BEVs and PHEVs) are eligible for the incentive. Used EVs must be less than four years old and incentives for leased vehicles will be proportionate to the length of the lease, with a full incentive for a four-year lease.

Rebates under the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Rebate Program are available until the $25-million funding allocation is depleted or upon program close (March 31, 2026), whichever comes first.

Additionally, Manitoba Hydro is offering Manitobans a financing program to install Level 2 electric vehicle chargers at their homes.
