An Electric Cutback: Quebec to scale back EV rebates, cutting them entirely by 2027

Quebec City, Quebec — Quebec’s National Assembly recently announced in a 2024 to 2025 budget meeting that it plans to extinguish the Roulez Vert electric vehicle (EV) rebate program by 2027.

The decision for the cutback was specifically announced by the reigning governmental Coalition Avenir (CAQ).

Currently, Quebec offers the most generous provincial rebate in the country at $7,000 for battery electric vehicles (BEVs). This amount is set to decrease over the next three years to $4,000 in 2025; while eligible plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) will see subsidization cuts from $5,000 to $2,000.

Following this, in 2026, the rebates will be further diminished, becoming $2,000 for BEVs and $1,000 for PHEVs. Then, on January 1, 2027, the rebates will be wiped out completely.

Despite these cutbacks, drivers in Quebec will still have an option of getting financial assistance for a time following the cutoff dates. Namely, the Quebec budget documentation specifies that “(electric vehicles) will continue to be eligible for the $5,000 rebate from the federal government until March 31, 2025 or until the exhaustion of funds.”
