In a notice posted on its website, Transport Canada said the popular car ceased to be eligible for the federal $5,000 electric car rebate program for both its 2021 and 2022 models.
Only Tesla Model 3 that were ordered before Nov. 23 will still have the rebate shaved off its price tag under what the government calls its iZEV program.
Transport Canada said Tesla announced a price increase to its standard range and standard range plus models that took effect Nov. 23, which now exceeds the iZEV program’s eligibility requirements.
“As a result, these vehicle models are no longer eligible for iZEV program incentives,” the department said.
