Ontario Announces Rebates of Up to C$10,000 for Plug-in Electric Drive Vehicles

Ontario Announces Rebates of Up to C$10,000 for Plug-in Electric Drive Vehicles, but more exciting is that they have a goal of getting 5% of the vehicles on the roads to a plug-in hybrid or all electric vehicle by 2020. To help this 20% of all new government purchases will be one of these forms of electric vehicles.


Since there are currently no mass produced plug-in hybrids, I'm guessing this is going to be a backloaded goal, however, the rebates will just about guarantee good sales of the first plug-in Prius in Canada.
