It claims that Tesla was left out of a program that allows purchasers of other brands to still get rebates during a transition period.
“The decision has already inflicted substantial harm on Tesla Canada in the form of lost sales and the creation of an impression among Ontarians that Tesla Canada may be singled out for future arbitrary treatment under the law,” says the statement filed Aug. 10.
It asks the Ontario Superior Court to quash the “arbitrary and entirely unreasonable” decision, adding that the government has given it no reason for its exclusion from the rebate extension.
None of Tesla’s claims has been proven in court. The company said it would not provide further comment.
