A rebatedirectly from yourdealer

Procedure to Follow

First – You must register for online services

NEW: If you wish to obtain your rebate from the car dealer at the time of the transaction, you must first register for our online services (in French only) and create your user profile. Please remember to enter all the requested information in your profile (your contact information, mailing address, etc.).

Are you a new user? Read our online help for instructions on how to create your profile before you visit the car dealer.

How Are Rebates Granted?

You can obtain the rebate amount you are entitled to directly from your dealer.

At the time of the transaction and with your authorization, your dealer will fill out your rebate application form for your new vehicle. He will make sure your online service user profile has been created, will check your eligibility for the program and will confirm the exact amount of the rebate.

Your dealer must submit your application along with the following:

  • a complete copy of your signed purchase agreement (or long-term lease where applicable);
  • one copy of the SAAQ proof of service;
  • one copy of the New Vehicle Information Statement (NVIS) form, produced by the manufacturer and signed by the car dealer;
  • The transfer of rights form, duly signed by you and your car dealer.

Once the form is completed, your dealer will ask you to sign a copy of the transfer of rights form. Your signature will confirm that you authorize the government to disburse your rebate directly to your dealer, who can then subtract the rebate amount from the total cost of your vehicle (including applicable fees and taxes).


Application made directly by the individual

If your dealership does not offer to deduct the rebate immediately from the price of your vehicle, or if you have purchased a low-speed electric vehicle or electric motorcycle, you must complete the rebate application yourself.

Here is the procedure to follow:

  • Access the program’s Online Services.(in French only)
  • Create your account and complete your user profile.
  • Click on My Applications, then on Create an application. Choose the New Vehicle option.
  • The Participant tab is already completed. Enter all the necessary information in the Vehicle tab.
  • In the Documents tab, make sure you attach an electronic version of all the supporting documents required:
    • signed purchase agreement (or long-term lease where applicable);
    • SAAQ proof of service or a copy of the signed registration certificate;
    • New Vehicle Information Statement (NVIS) produced by the manufacturer and available from your car dealer.
  • Save the application, then click on Send the application to the administrator.

If you are unable to use the online service, you may submit your application by mail, using the PDF form. A copy of the form, plus copies of the required supporting documents, must be sent to:

Three electric vehicles in the same year

If you want to apply for a rebate for three or more electric vehicles in the same year, the minimum registration period in Québec will then be 36 months for each vehicle.

If the vehicles have not been purchased but are subject to a lease agreement with the dealer, each vehicle's lease period must also be at least 36 months.

Businesses and municipalities

The program is also offered to businesses, nonprofit organizations, and municipalities.
