Hyundai EV & PHEV
WHAT IS EV AND PHEV?
Battery Electric Vehicles also called BEVs, and more frequently called EVs, are fully-electric vehicles with rechargeable batteries and no gasoline engine. Battery electric vehicles store electricity onboard with high-capacity battery packs. Their battery power is used to run the electric motor and all onboard electronics. BEVs do not emit any harmful emissions and hazards caused by traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. BEVs are charged by electricity from an external source. Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers are classified according to the speed with which they recharge an EVs battery.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles or PHEVs can recharge the battery through both regenerative braking and “plugging in” to an external source of electrical power. While “standard” hybrids can (at low speed) go about 1-2 miles before the gasoline engine turns on, PHEV models can go anywhere from 10-40 miles before their gas engines provide assistance.

Federal iZEV Program
As of May 1, 2019, the Government of Canada provides point-of-sale incentives for fully battery-electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles with a base model MSRP under $45,000, or under $55,000 in the case of vehicles with 7+ seats. Higher trim models of qualifying base vehicles may still be eligible.
The iZEV program is managed by Transport Canada and offers up to $5,000 off the purchase price of a qualifying new battery electric vehicle, $2,500-$5,000 on a plug-in hybrid (depending on battery size), and up to $5,000 for a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

Clean Energy Vehicle Program
The province of British Columbia has renewed funding for the Clean Energy Vehicle (CEVforBC) Point of Sale Incentive Program. The new program includes point-of-sale incentives for battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, investments in charging infrastructure and hydrogen fuelling infrastructure, additional support for fleets to adopt CEVs, and investments in research, training and outreach.
The CEVforBC point of sale incentive program is managed by the New Car Dealers Association of BC, and offers up to $3,000 off the purchase price of qualifying new battery electric, up to $1,500 for a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, and up to $3,000 for a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
Visit CEVforBC for more information.
BC SCRAP-IT Program
BC SCRAP-IT is a voluntary early retirement vehicle program that provides incentives to help British Columbians replace higher polluting vehicles with cleaner forms of transportation. The program is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to lower exhaust pollutants across the province. All scrapped vehicles and their components are permanently and properly recycled.
Incentives for up to $6,000 are available for a new, and $3,000 for a used qualifying electric vehicle.
