Tesla wins against Ontario gov as judge rules that phase-out of EV incentives is discriminatory

In Ontario, a judge has sided with Tesla and agreed that the government was discriminating against the company when it excluded Tesla from the phase-out period of the removal of the province’s EV incentives.

Now it is up to the Ministry of Transport’s to make things right for the Tesla buyers.

If you are not aware of the situation, the new Ontario government shut down its generous EV rebate just as Tesla Model 3 deliveries were blowing it up.

The shutdown of the rebate, which was worth up to $14,000, is a done deal and it is not what is being contested by Tesla – something that has been grossly misrepresented in the media.

Tesla is actually contesting that it was the only automaker excluded from a phase-out period.

After the election of the Conservative party in June, Doug Ford, the party’s leader, said that they were shutting down the cap-and-trade program, which was financing the EV rebate, in order to finance a 10-cent per litre tax reduction on gasoline.
