Hybrid tax rebates doubled in Ontario, Canada
The main reason for the increase is the province's desire to maintain its leadership role in the automotive industry in Canada. Hybrids are considered 'leading-edge' technology, and Ontario hopes the new rebate will encourage automakers to continue developing the technology.
A representative of Ford Motor Co. acknowledged the intent: "British Columbia and Prince Edward Island also support the purchase of this leading-edge technology. Ford of Canada is encouraging other provinces and the federal government to follow suit, so that all Canadians will have similar hybrid consumer incentives."
