Ottawa, Aug 8 (IBNS): Canada’s new rebate program to help make electric cars cheaper had resulted in the boost of 30 percent more sales of electric cars in Canada between January and June, compared to the year before, media reports said.

According to Transport Canada's report, more than 14,000 electric vehicles were purchased nationwide during the first three months of the federal government's new rebate program.

The increase in the sale was mostly in the two provinces of B.C. and Quebec, which required a minimum number of electric car sales.

Further details about what kinds of cars were the most popular purchases by the province have not yet been provided by Transport Canada.
