Go green,

get $5,000

If you want to go green you can get some discounts to make it easier, thanks to the Clean Energy Vehicle Incentive Program launched by the B.C. government.

Anyone who buys battery electric vehicle, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, an extended range battery electric vehicle, a compressed natural gas vehicle or even a hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicle can get $5,000 knocked off the sticker price, even before tax, when they’re at participating dealerships.

Under the program, dealers give the discount then apply for the cash rebate from the province.

Marv Jones Honda and West Coast Ford Lincoln are two Maple Ridge dealerships participating.

The CEV for B.C. Program is part of the Clean Energy Transportation program.

According to Clean Energy Vehicles for B.C. there are:

• 1 million electric vehicles estimated to be on the road in BC by 2030;

• $1,200 – the anticipated savings per year on fuel by filling up with electricity instead of oil;

• 2:1 – the ratio of British Columbians who have switched to hybrid vehicles compared to the  average Canadian;

• 93% – the percentage of electricity generation in BC that comes from renewable sources;

• About 95% – of all car trips in BC’s urban areas are less than 30km, ideal for Clean Energy  Vehicles.
