Terra Inventions Corp. (OTCBB: TERX), to Qualify for Canadian Tax Credits, Grants and Other Incentives For Advanced Technological Development of Lithium-Ion Powered, Vehicle Propulsion System Performed in Canada

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - Terra Inventions Corp (OTCBB: TERX), winner of the 2010 X-Prize, certified with highest efficiency and most aerodynamic vehicle in the world, is proud to announce the technology licensed to Lithium Electric Vehicle Corp. (LEVC), a Canadian company, will qualify for government incentives on both the national and provincial levels for future technological development/advancement of all-electric vehicle propulsion technology in Canada. 

The Canadian Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) program is one of the most beneficial and most generous R&D incentive programs in the world. Under the SR&ED program, Canadian companies can receive up to 41.5% of their R&D expenses reimbursed through the federal and provincial governments. SR&ED refunds are often reinvested to hire more staff, and to develop new and innovative products, in order to maintain a competitive advantage in the Canadian economy. 

In addition to the SR&ED program, other active incentive programs such as the: Green Technologies Demonstration Program (Technoclimat) provides grants or loans for the demonstration of technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. All of the lithium-ion powered vehicles achieve this goal. The program can also be used by firms that have licensed technology developed by a Québec institution. Technoclimat works to support the development of technologies that limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions by improving energy efficiency so as to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, replacing fuels and fossil fuels with renewable energy and contributing to the development of Québec businesses and the creation of green technology jobs.

Terra Inventions entered into a Licensing Agreement with Lithium Electric Vehicle Corp. (LEVC); a Canadian company, that makes Terra Invention's Research and Development and technology for lithium ion powered, all-electric vehicles available to LEVC for further technological development, paving the way for the company to continue as the world's leader in the development of all-electric lithium ion powered vehicles. Future technological developments will be performed in Canada by LEVC with Terra Inventions having access to such advancements at any time providing both parties agree to a fair price for such future advancements.
