Despite new Tesla orders not qualifying for the iZEV program in 2022, the Model 3 remained Canada’s most incentivized vehicle last year. The company shipped nearly 11,000 eligible sedans to Canadian customers, all of them ordered in 2021.
As 2023 gets under way, the Model 3 is poised to requalify for iZEV rebates. Tesla reduced the price of its lowest-cost model to $54,990 from $61,980 Jan. 13, putting it just below the threshold for eligibility.
Hyundai’s Kona and Ioniq 5 placed second and third among eligible BEVs, with 5,361 and 4,812 deliveries, respectively.
The two versions of the Chevrolet Bolt round out the top five BEV models for 2022, with qualifying EUV deliveries totaling 3,198, and Bolt hatchback shipments tallying 2,520.
