The CleanBC Go Electric Program is intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) in British Columbia (B.C.) for both their environmental and economic benefits.

The CleanBC Go Electric Specialty Use Vehicle Incentive (SUVI Program) is a sub-program of the CleanBC Go Electric Program and is designed to support the adoption of ZEVs in a variety of applications including motorcycles, low-speed vehicles, electric cargo bicycles (cargo e-bikes), utility vehicles, and a variety of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, referred to as specialty-use vehicles. The SUVI Program targets specialty-use vehicles that are not included in the CleanBC Go Electric Vehicle Rebate Program, which focuses on light-duty (passenger) vehicles.
