Has anyone been able to take advantage of this rebate?  In 2018 it will be renewed with more $6000 incentives for new EVs as well as continuing the $3000 incentive for used EV.  I'm waiting for the 2018 Leaf and will take advantage of the $6000 incentive in 2018 when I scrap my 2004 Mazda 6 or if it breaks down before then getting a used EV.

     This Friday I'll be dropping off my old Elantra to claim the used car incentive. It'll be $3250 after the dealership kicks in $250, which is more than the car is worth at this point (that doesn't mean I won't miss it).

     I'm a bit jealous of the 2018, but I'll have a few years enioying my new (to me) 2014 until the new model enters the used market!

Thanks for the reply Rob.  Congrats on your 2014 Leaf.  I might go this route as well depending on how long my current car will last.  It is also not worth $3000, but I would like to get double that in 2018.  I owned it since new.  It has served me well over all these years and could probably run a few more years if given an overhaul.  But its time to go electric.  Used Leaf S seem to be about $15,000 with incentive but I hope to get 2018 Leaf S for $31,000 with all incentives, taxes and fees applied.  Hopefully max range will be 250km - 300km.  Used EVs are a good choice as well given I only drive around Victoria 98% of the time.  I noticed a few 2014 in inventory but expect as more leases expire more inventory to be available.  Kia Soul EV and eGolf are both considerations too. 

Regards Phu

Phu,

     There were quite a few rumours about the 2018 Leaf over the last month, so I had to avoid them while looking at 2014/2013s. Sounds like it should have some nice upgrades, but I needed to keep my feet planted for an older one for now!

     I did look at the Leaf when it came to BC a few years ago, but the used ones coming off lease are a great deal now. There's only two things I wish I had on the S model; cruise control and leather seats. And I'd pick the QC port over both of this, which I did. 

     As far as charging goes, I've had no issues and the trickle charger has worked great for daily use. When I take my next trip to the interior, I'll see how the fast charging works out. 

     I actually didnt look at any EVs besides the Leaf, but I have seen a few of the Souls kicking around on the road. 

     Last Friday I did drop off the Elantra at Schnitzer Steel, which was pretty quick and painless (other than knowing the flattened future state of my car). After finishing the paperwork online, I just need to wait for thr cheque in the mail.
