As climate targets become more ambitious, the automotive industry continues to innovate and adapt to provide more eco-friendly transportation options to consumers. In 2019, the transport sector was the second-largest source of GHG emissions, accounting for 25% (186 megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent) of total national emissions in Canada.
According to Statistics Canada, in the third quarter of 2020, 3.5% of total new vehicles registered in Canada were zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs). The vast majority of these being in Quebec, Ontario, and BC.
