Maximum one (1) incentive per EV vehicle. An EV can only receive one incentive from our program. In other words, once an EV claim has been made by a SCRAP-IT customer for a particular vehicle, it cannot be resold and then claimed by a second SCRAP-IT customer where a second incentive is claimed for the same vehicle. This applies to both NEW and USED EV incentives. Before purchasing a used EV, please use the following VIN checker to make sure the vehicle you are considering buying, has not already received an incentive through our program.
EXAMPLE: A SCRAP-IT customer scraps their car and submits a claim for a used, 2014 Nissan Leaf. They receive a $3,000 incentive. They later trade in that 2014 Nissan Leaf at a participating dealership and purchase a new EV. The 2014 Nissan Leaf is now being sold as a used EV by the dealership. That 2014 Nissan Leaf has already been the subject of a SCRAP-IT transaction where an incentive was issued. Therefore, that 2014 Nissan Leaf is not eligible for our program, or any future incentives.
Please note, the VIN eligibility checker will search all vehicle records in our database including electric vehicles.
DEFINITION OF A NEW EV: This vehicle has never been the subject of a retail sale, or registered to an owner (previously owned). A demo vehicle is eligible as a NEW EV only if it meets all three of the following criteria: (1) It has never been registered to an owner, (2) It has only ever been driven by dealership staff and; (3) It’s mileage is less than 10,000 kms. In other words, if the demo vehicle qualifies for the CEVforBC point of sale rebate as a new vehicle, then it will also qualify for the BC SCRAP-IT new EV incentive.
