iZEV Program on Nissan Electric and Hybrid Vehicles in Duncan, BC
On May 1st of 2019, the Canadian government proposed incentives on the purchase or lease of electric and other zero-emission vehicles. This became the basis for the current iZEV program that’s presided over by Transport Canada. The Nissan of Duncan dealership on Vancouver Island of British Columbia offers incentives through the iZEV program, as do other Landsperg Auto Group (LAG) locations for qualifying ZEV models.
A ZEV (Zero-Emission Vehicle) has 1 specific qualifier for the iZEV program:
A vehicle that has the potential to produce no tailpipe emissions.
However, this point requires a little clarification, especially for drivers unfamiliar with ZEVs.
A ZEV DOES NOT always need to produce no tailpipe emissions during operation. It ONLY needs to have the ability to do so.
A ZEV CAN have a conventional internal combustion engine. HOWEVER, it must have the ability to operate without it at times.
Vehicles considered ZEVs under these rules include:
Plug-In Hybrid Electric Models
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Models
What is the iZEV Program?
