New updates and new savings to Quebec’s Roulez Vert EV program

Quebec’s primary incentive program, the Roulez Vert program, was recently updated to keep up with the demand of proposals submitted and EV market developments. Below you will find the most recent program changes.

Two parts to the incentive:

  • acquisition of a new or used electric vehicle
  • installation of charging equipment and stations at home, in multi-unit residential buildings or in the workplace*

*For installations relating to the workplace, please refer to the Roulez Vert program.

Current situation: 171 000 electric vehicles

DCC: a Roulez vert eligible product

The DCC by RVE, which has sales of over 12,000 units in Quebec alone, has been an eligible product offered through Roulez Vert since 2019.

The DCC can be used to adapt the infrastructure of a building to be EV ready, all without committing to a more permanent strategy when building residents may still not have an EV and/or are ready to install a charging station. At RVE we advocate for electrical infrastructure preparation for electric vehicles and the Roulez Vert changes align with this practical and cost-effective approach.

We also offer tools and guidance for EV readiness through our brand, Murbly
