Plug’n Drive has launched a programme which offers CAN$1,000 off the purchase of a used electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (EV) for drivers in Ontario, Canada.
Cara Clairman, president and CEO of Plug’n Drive, a non-profit organisation, says: "Used EVs are affordable and available, and this incentive will help more people join the EV revolution."
The programme was realised through a collaboration with environmental organisation Clean Air Partnership and local business M.H Brigham Foundation.
Gabriella Kalapos, executive director, Clean Air Partnership, says: "By enabling more drivers to make the switch to an electric car, this incentive will help drivers contribute to cleaner, healthier and more sustainable communities."
To qualify for the incentive, drivers must:
• Test drive an EV at Plug'n Drive's Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre in North York or at one of its outreach events around Ontario.
• Attend a free seminar on the benefits of electric driving and what to look for when shopping for a used EV.
• Purchase a used EV within up to one year of taking the seminar and submit proof of ownership and insurance to Plug'n Drive.
