As part of Canada's New Government's plan to protect the environment, the ecoAUTO Rebate Program encourages Canadians to buy or lease fuel-efficient vehicles.

How? It offers rebates from $1000 to $2000, to people who buy or enter a long-term lease (12 months or more) for a fuel-efficient vehicle, as of March 20, 2007.

The two-year ecoAUTO Rebate Program offers performance-based rebates on new light duty vehicles.

What vehicles get rebates?

The list of eligible vehicles is established by Transport Canada and includes:

New cars with a combined fuel consumption of 6.5 L/100km or less;

New sport utility vehicles and other light duty vehicles with a combined fuel consumption of 8.3 L/100km or less; and new flexible-fuel vehicles with a combined E85 fuel consumption rating of 13.0 L/100km or less.

A number of Canadian provinces also offer incentive programs on advanced technology and fuel-efficient vehicles, and drivers could benefit from both programs.

For whatever reason there are no Smart cars listed for 2007?

That's 'cuz there were no 2007 smarts imported into Canada, just '04-'06 CDIs and now '08 gassers.
