Join the wave of BC fleets that are going electric.
The CleanBC Go Electric Program is designed to encourage zero emission vehicle (ZEV) deployment, technology innovation and growth in clean economy jobs in British Columbia. A key sub-program of the Go Electric Program is the Specialty-Use Vehicle Incentive (SUVI) Program, which supports the adoption of ZEVs in a variety of applications including motorcycles, low-speed vehicles, e-bikes, and unique service vehicles. The purpose of this program is to continue to encourage ZEV deployment and technology innovation in the province, by:
- offering incentives to reduce the cost barriers for customers;
- engaging ZEV buyers and suppliers in learning about and promoting ZEVs through various initiatives, including, but not limited to interviews, in-person workshops, direct outreach and the facilitation of procurement opportunities if applicable; and
- increasing awareness and knowledge of ZEVs in British Columbia via education and outreach regarding the Program.
Specialty Use Vehicle Incentive
The SUVI Program provides rebates on electric motorcycles, utility trucks, buses & more.
The purchaser or lessee of an eligible vehicle can receive money back by applying to the program. The rebate will be limited to a maximum of 35% of the vehicle MSRP regardless of the total incentive amount indicated in a vehicle category. The amounts are subject to change and may be adjusted during the program period. Additionally, fleets are limited to no more than 5 rebates per organization.
Applications for any vehicle category incentive must be received within 90 days of purchasing the vehicle.
Medium and Heavy Duty Fleet Tool
The Fleet Procurement Analysis Tool equips users with decision-relevant information on the financial viability and environmental impact of light-duty vehicle fleet procurements. It can evaluate a variety of procurement ownership structures, vehicle types, and procurement scenarios.
This tool is currently a Microsoft Excel file, with a web-based interface to be launched later in 2020.
