Car dealers and vehicle manufacturers

Notice

To determine a vehicle's eligibility for the Roulez Vert program, a vehicle with an added component, such as full-wheel drive or a long-range battery, is considered a different version of the same vehicle model. Under no circumstances can this type of addition be considered an option in the interpretation of the normative framework. To be eligible for a discount, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for each model and version must be less than $60,000.

An option is a term for an accessory that does not alter the intrinsic components of a vehicle.

Car dealers

Québec car dealers can become partners of the Roulez vert program to offer their customers rebates on the purchase or lease of electric vehicles.

See the French version of this site for more information.

Vehicle manufacturers

The list of eligible new vehicles is based on information provided by vehicle manufacturers.

Manufacturers are responsible for filing applications to add new vehicles to the list as soon as new models arrive on the market or current models are replaced by more recent ones.

As of April 1, 2020, only vehicles whose manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) is lower than $60,000 are eligible for a rebate from the Roulez vert program.

As of January 1, 2021, non-plug-in hybrid vehicles and low-speed vehicles are no longer eligible for a rebate.

Note: The Transportez vert program offers financial assistance to companies, municipalities and public bodies that want to acquire a light-duty vehicle such as a pickup truck, a truck or a van or an all-electric low-speed vehicle, a plug-in hybrid vehicle or a hydrogen vehicle with an MSRP above $60,000.

Eligibility of the vehicle in the event of a difference between the actual price and the accepted limit for the MSRP.

The eligibility of a new vehicle for the government rebate is determined based on the criteria set out in the Normative Framework of the program.

Therefore, with the exception of engine (e.g. all-wheel drive) and battery (e.g. extended range) options, even if the actual purchase price of the vehicle exceeds the accepted MSRP limit after transportation and preparation charges or charges for a specific colour or accessories have been added, the vehicle is still eligible for the rebate if the model is one of the eligible new vehicles.

It should be noted that an engine type or an extended-range battery are not considered options under the normative framework.

For all engine and battery-related options, the option price will be added to the MSRP to determine the vehicle’s eligibility for the program.

For complete vehicle eligibility requirements, please consult the program's Normative Framework PDF (in French only).

To file an application for the inclusion of a new vehicle on the list, simply email the completed, duly signed Application for Registration of a New Vehicle to roulez.electrique@mern.gouv.qc.ca.

Applications will be examined by the program administrator to determine vehicle eligibility and the amount of financial assistance associated with the vehicle.
