Here is a car shopping tip you do not see everyday. In March 2007 the Canadian Government announced in their budget that a rebate would be available for fuel efficient vehicles, referred to as the ecoAuto Rebate Program.
The idea is to reward those drivers who are trying to help with the environment by driving vehicles that are more fuel efficient. So here is a win / win car buying tip for anyone in the market for a new vehicle, drive a vehicle that is more fuel efficient and then get $ 1000 back for your new car purchase!
If you are in the market for a new car you can follow the link at the end of this article for a list of vehicles that are included under this program. Keep in mind that the 2008 model year vehicles have not been released as of yet, but keep visiting the site and in time the 2008 model year will be included.
The an outline of the ecoAuto Rebate Program is as follows:
The progam is applicable to anyone buying or leasing a vehicle after March 20, 2007 as long as the car you purchased is on the list.
Only cars bought or leased in Canada are eligible for the Program. If you purchased your car in the USA then you are not entitled to the rebate.
Individuals, businesses and organizations can apply under the EcoAuto Rebate Program, again as long as the vehicle bought or leased is on the list of eligible vehicles.
It's a pretty simple process however there is no indication as to how long it will take for you to receive your ecoAuto Rebate, understand however that this rebate comes directly from the Canadian Government it is not associated with the car dealership where you purchase or lease your new vehicle. You can get the forms from the Dealership where you initially purchased our vehicle or again follow the ecoAuto Rebate Program link below for all the information you need!
