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.

What Vehicles Count as ZEVs? 

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: 

Battery-Electric Models

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Models

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Models

What is the iZEV Program? 

iZEV stands for ‘Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles’. The Transport Canada iZEV program offers incentives on zero-emission vehicles with a base model MSRP under $45,500 (or $55,000 for 3-row vehicles). 


The iZEV program offers a discount of up to $5,000 for the purchase or lease of a new battery-electric vehicle, a discount of up to $2,500-$,5,000 for the purchase or lease of a plug-in hybrid vehicle, and a discount of up to $5,000 for the purchase or lease of a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The discount rate will vary depending on the chosen trim level and vehicle size.
