At Centennial Nissan of Charlottetown, July marked a major milestone. After building momentum through April, May, and June, one out of every five vehicles sold at Centennial Nissan in July was fully electric.

A major change in government policy in April 2021 has made the prospect of owning an electric vehicle more attainable in Prince Edward Island. Islanders are now able to take advantage of up to $10,000 in combined federal/provincial rebates on new electric vehicles and $5,000 in provincial rebates on pre-owned electric vehicles.

With a broad and evolving inventory of new Nissan electric vehicles along with pre-owned EVs from a wide variety of manufacturers, availability is no longer an issue at Centennial Nissan. As for affordability, many car buyers are now asking a very different question: Can I afford not to drive electric?
