The incentives vary based on the size of a cars battery, but the Leaf is able to qualify for the full $8,500 rebate.
On sale in Canada at the end of 2011, the Leaf has already attracted 2,500 “handraisers”, and the $8,500 credit is sure to make it an attractive proposition in an area where gas hovers around the $4/gallon mark.
