Tesla has won an important ruling against the new Ontario government over cancelled electric vehicle rebates. Two weeks ago, Tesla Motors Canada sued the Progressive Conservative government over the cancellation of the previous Liberal government’s Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program, which offered rebates of up to $14,000 on qualifying vehicles like Tesla Motors’. The rebates’ abrupt end came as a surprise to many observers, especially when it was discovered that Tesla was specifically excluded from the government’s transition program. Tesla’s suit argued that the decision was arbitrary and unreasonable. On August 27, Superior Court Justice Frederick Myers agreed, calling it an unlawful exercise of discretion. Justice Myers ordered the decision quashed and set aside. The government has said it will be reviewing the ruling, and will decide on how to proceed in the coming days.
