    EVIP comes off the total (taxes included) price of the car. Tesla assists you in completing the application forms and sends them in for you. My cheque came in the mail about two weeks later.

    Other car makers will take the EVIP amount off the bottom line (giving you the rebate on the spot) and then claim the amount for themselves after the fact.

    Both methodologies are permitted under the EVIP program rules.

    Ah ok, so both methods were true. It just depends on the manufacturer. Thanks for the info.

    I'm curious if anyone recently (ie. this year) have received their EVIP and how long did it take? It's now a month for me, no cheque thus far, no direct deposit either. I'll be following up when I go back into Tesla in the next couple of days, but am curious to see if others have had problems.

    I'm taking delivery this Saturday so I'm interested in this data point. Did you send the forms in yourself or did Tesla do them for you? Lawrence?

    There's nothing you have to do, everything is processed at Tesla. They submit the paperwork to the government but keep in mind they are super backlogged by months. So don't expect the rebate anytime soon!

    Tesla essentially fills out the forms and submits them. I wanted to insight from others to see what the timeline might be instead of harassing Tesla staff for no reason.Yes, I took delivery at Lawrence.

    Good to know that it's backlogged, but will keep reminders going so that it doesn't get lost in time.

    My data point is a bit old - from December 2013 - but I found that the Tesla folks in Montreal were too busy to submit my forms, so after 2 weeks I told them I'd do it myself. From that point, it was 6 weeks until I received my rebates.

    Still waiting and here is my story:
    My X was delivered late Dec 2016. Tesla submitted my application early Mar 2017.
    I contacted MOF during Apr and was told they got my application but are still processing Dec.

    Must have pimply faced teenagers doing the rebates between bouts of playing Call of Duty at both Tesla and MTO. Application is not hard to fill out, cannot believe it took Tesla 3 months to do. For the MTO, everything is right there in the application. Car bought... check. Eligible car... check. Has it been registered with MTO...check. Mail rebate cheque....check. But this is corporate and government bureaucracy, so it takes 6-8 months.

    When I bought my Model S, filled it out myself and got paid about 3 months later. With my Volt, GM gave me the rebate when I bought the car. Much more preferable the second way.

    Were those weeks metric or imperial, Mike?

    You haven't lived till you've experienced 6-day weeks. (I recommend not asking…)

    Remind me (us) - when did you take delivery? It just helps to give an idea for a timeline.

    I took delivery at the end of January. No rebate received yet. I opted for direct deposit. With my Model S it took about 4 months I recall?

    Can anyone guess how much notice we will have if this incentive is reduced or removed?
