  • $500 for an electric scooter (limited-speed motorcycle).

Consult the detailed list of new electric vehicles eligible for the Roulez vert program to determine the exact amount of the rebates when purchasing and leasing vehicles.

Calculation of the applicable taxes

The applicable taxes are calculated on the vehicle’s price before the government rebate is applied.

Registration date

Regardless of the date on which the vehicle is purchased or ordered, it is the date on which the vehicle is registered in your name that is considered to verify the vehicle’s eligibility and the amount of the financial assistance depending on the program-related conditions then in force.

Payment of the financial assistance

If you do business with a dealership, it can offer to apply the government rebate to your purchase or long-term lease contract. You will not have to wait to obtain the financial assistance.

If you wish to apply personally or your dealer is unable to apply the financial assistance to your purchase or lease contract, you can directly claim the financial assistance through the program’s online services. You will receive the funds several weeks after your application is approved.

Dealer administration fees

Your dealer should not demand administration fees to apply the government rebate to your purchase or leasing contract.

You can refuse your dealer’s application of the rebate and submit your application for financial assistance using our online services.

Applicable amounts

The Québec government can modify the conditions governing the Roulez vert program and the amounts of the financial assistance.

To learn more, consult the About the Roulez vert program section.

Federal government financial assistance

The federal government also offers a subsidy of up to $5,000 for the purchase or leasing of a new electric vehicle, which is added to the Québec government rebate
