Ontario Gives Back to Green Vehicles

Monday, December 7th, 2009

As the green way becomes the right way, more and more electric cars are beginning to be seen. Let’s admit this though, the very sight of one of these raises questions. Sure it looks more like a go-kart than an actual car, but there is little doubt that these vehicles are in fact better for the environment. Still that is not going to motivate every consumer to go out and get themselves behind the wheel of one of these electric or hybrid cars. There needs to be more of an incentive than the feel good aspect. That is exactly what Ontario, Canada is doing to assure more green vehicles hit their streets.

Starting in 2010 Ontario will offer a limited program exclusive to drivers that own green vehicles, such as plug-in hybrids and battery-powered electric vehicles. These vehicles will be given green colored license plates by the ministry of transportation next year. The owners of eligible vehicles will receive exclusive privileges that are intended to make driving a green vehicle more appealing.
