Leaf and Volt are probably going to have decent inventory around. Leaf is about to be replaced by a 2nd gen model, so you may even be able to get current ones at good deals. Ford's C-Max Energi and Fusion Energi are PHEVs that get smaller credits in ON so they haven't been as popular / unobtanium as the waitlisted FFE.
2017 Leaf is sold out

" Great news is Mitsubishi Outlander finally arriving Feb 2018 with starting price of 42k minus approx 10k in on govt rebate and leasing will be available! 12kwh battery and Chademo fast charging will give you around 50km range!"

This would be the first SUV PHEV, but they should have put at least an 18kwh battery in there!
Well, to give them some credit, it's 2012 tech in 2018
So it was good when first introduced. Now, not so much.

You did. They've been overseas for 5 years. This is their first landing on our shores, finally.

I think Costco added new chargers, ordering tonight and didn't notice the Sun Country Chargers in the past.

They're back, nice!
Costco carried them 3 years ago and then they disappeared for a bit. (I got my LCS-25 there)
Price is a little higher, but so is USD:CAD so that's too be expected.

BMW X5, Porsce Cayenne, Volvo XC90 are all SUVs available as PHEVS in Canada albeit more expensive.

ClipperCreek is good I hear, from the USA, I didn't know they make it for Sun Country, nice.
Have been using the Sun Country Highway SCH25P for 3.5 years - no issues and such a portable size.

I put a deposit down on one of these about a month ago. From the order guide forwarded to me, the MSRP starts at 43K. Dealer said they haven't finalized the rebate, but likely 9-9.3K. No info on battery size or range in the order guide.

The ON government INTENDS to keep the program until 2022 or if the program funds are exhausted, but depends on if Liberal gov wins or loses next election around June. I'm in the same boat so most likely I'll try my best to use the rebate by first few months of 2018, but who really knows, the shortage of all the EVs suck right now.
I'm a little bit worried about this as well. My Tesla Model 3 is slated for a late 2018 delivery, most likely pushed into 2019. I wouldn't be able to afford this car if the gov't rebate is no longer available.

If you cancel your order now, you may be lucky and receive your refund by the end of 2018! ;)

I fully intend on getting the Model 3, currently driving a BMW 328i so I'm into sporty cars. The look/image of the current EVs just don't do it for me. Tbh, I don't really see the incentives going away though even if the Liberals are not in power. This environmental movement is a big deal, I doubt they will pull the plug on this.

It won't. June 2018 is the election. Liberals are not sure to lose with the government backers.

Also, it probably takes a while to table or remove these green environment rules.

My daughter wants the iPhone X. I told her she can get one once I cancel my reservation for the M3.
