I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet, but for the few of us in B.C. who took delivery of a Leaf prior to December 1: the CEV for BC program will now provide you with a rebate. I got a cheque from the dealer yesterday.

under "IF A CUSTOMER BOUGHT A QUALIFYING VEHICLE BEFORE PROGRAM LAUNCH DATE, ARE THEY ELIGIBLE FOR THE INCENTIVE?"
Should an individual who has purchased or leased a CEV, prior to the official program start date (December 1, 2011) approach the NCDABC or the dealership where the vehicle was sold or leased, requesting the incentive level be applied to their vehicle purchase, the NCDABC may apply the appropriate incentive amount provided all other eligibility requirements have otherwise been met. This discretionary provision to provide incentives to vehicles purchased or leased prior to December 1st, 2011, will only be valid for cases made to the NCDABC and/or dealerships prior to December 31st, 2011.
The dealer in Victoria, B.C. has apparently now delivered 6 Leafs. I am no longer alone.
