    Took delivery of my S75D on June 10 2017. Submitted the EVIP rebate forms on June 12. I still haven't received my rebate, so I called the EVIP folks. They said they're still working through mid-April right now, so expect it will be another couple of months. That equates to roughly a 6 month wait... Just thought I'd share.

    Thanks for the info. Were you able to confirm with them whether they received your application?
    I had Tesla Lawrence SC submit it for me, though I am not sure whether they actually did or if it's still sitting in their office...kinda kicking myself now for now submitting it on my own..

    Yes, I was able to confirm. I was worried about the same thing! :)

    I see that they haven't gotten any faster since I did it 3.5 years ago.

    Imagine how it will be when Model 3s start shipping in real volume! But that might not be until about 2020 ;)

    But as I mentioned, a lot slower than 4.5 years ago when my rebate took a whole 2 weeks to get to me.

    Note : Tesla may not be doing as well by purchasers as some dealers (not defending dealers, just FYI). When I bought my Smart ED in 2013, Mercedes gave credit for the rebate immediately on the purchase, and they followed up to claim the rebate. I didn't wait or do anything. Hoping this will be the case in a month when my new Smart ED is expected to arrive in Ontario.

    If conservatives or NdP win next election next year than the rebate will go

    Ontario rebate may go, sure, but likely supplanted by a Federal EV incentive of some kind...if the Liberals actually follow up on their election promise.

    Yes, dealers can apply the rebate at the point of sale,or do as Tesla does. Would be nice if they applied it at the time of sale because you wouldn't have to finance as much up front.

    I'm still waiting on the rebate for my A3 e-tron from May. Last I heard from someone they were processing applications for early April.

    My GM dealer gave me the rebate right off the purchase price last year. Even back in 2015 I had to wait months for the rebate on buying our Model S. Definitely better to have the dealer do it.
