The Ontario government will help take the sting out of buying pricey electric cars by offering purchasers incentives of as much as $10,000, Premier Dalton McGuinty is expected to announce today.
The financial incentives, which will be available to buyers beginning next year, are part of the Ontario government's ambitious plan to be in the vanguard of the next generation of the auto industry.
