$2,500 available to used car buyers!

About the Program

We’re excited to announce that the EV Rebate Program now includes used electric vehicles! This makes electric cars more affordable for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians!

The rebate is an initiative of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and is administered by Hydro.

Starting September 1, 2021, $2,500 rebates are available to eligible individuals, businesses, not-for-profit organizations or municipalities in NL for:

  • The purchase or lease (minimum 48 months) of a new all-electric vehicle*.
  • The purchase of a pre-owned all-electric vehicle.

Rebates will be issued to qualified participants for eligible all-electric EVs purchased on or after May 31, 2021. Completed applications will be accepted from September 1, 2021 to March 15, 2022.

Rebates are available on a first-come, first-serve basis or until program funding is depleted.


To qualify for the rebate:

  • You must be a permanent resident, business, not-for-profit, or municipality in Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • The new or used all-electric vehicle must be purchased between May 31, 2021 and March 15, 2022.
  • Applications will be accepted from September 1, 2021 to March 15, 2022.
  • Vehicle must be intended for personal, business, not-for-profit, or municipal use in Newfoundland and Labrador.
