California-based Tesla Motors largest beneficiary of Canada’s electric car rebates
The Canadian subsidiary of Tesla Motors, which has no manufacturing base in this country, was reimbursed over £125 million in federal green vehicle subsidies over the last two years.
Reports published Thursday by Blacklock’s Reporter state the car maker, owned by American billionaire Elon Musk, received £118.6 million from Ottawa in electric vehicle rebates, according to data from Transport Canada. That’s on top of nearly £6 million paid to Tesla Motors Canada, Inc. by the Department of Natural Resources to install 156 vehicle charging stations in western Canada — paying nearly £38,000 per charger in Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.
Launched in 2019, the federal government’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Program (iZEV) offers up to £5,000 in rebates, payable to dealerships, for purchasing new eligible electric vehicles under £55,000. We apologize, but this video has failed to load.
That’s on top of provincial rebate programs, currently offered in B.C., New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Yukon.
The federal Liberals are campaigning on a proposal to expand the rebate program to include used cars.
