Vicinity Motor Corp today announced its Vicinity Lightning™ EV bus, as well as its recently announced line of EV trucks, have received eligibility for customer rebates of up to 33% of the purchase price through the Canadian Province of British Columbia’s CleanBC Go Electric Program.

The program provides a maximum rebate of $100,000 or 33% of the purchase price per vehicle, whichever is lower. The program website link is

“This significant rebate opportunity for customers, such as this rebate in B.C., will propel the already strong momentum for our breakthrough Vicinity Lightning™ EV bus offering and recently announced VMC 1200 Class 3 EV truck,” said William Trainer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vicinity Motor Corp. “The continued support from the forward-thinking local, provincial and national governments of Canada for electrification is significant. The new rebates from the CleanBC Go Electric Program are intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) in British Columbia for both their environmental and economic benefits – and our Lightning™ EV and VMC 1200 Class 3 truck perfectly aligns with these goals by providing the versatility to support countless transit and industrial applications.

“These savings can be significant for our prospective customers, ranging from over $40,000 for a medium duty Class 3 vehicle, to the maximum $100,000 for our extended range 168 kWh Vicinity Lightning™ EV. We believe the rebates will further position our EVs at a price point very suitable for mass deployment, increasing sales and building shareholder value,” concluded Trainer.
