Sales Of Zero-Emission Vehicles Are Up In Canada

Thanks in part to the new Zero-Emission Vehicle Incentive Program, the sales of these vehicles increased by 30% in Canada.

It was a predictable scenario, but we can now talk about a heightened – and very successful – consumer interest in the Zero-Emission Vehicle Incentive Program launched by the federal government earlier this year. According to Ottawa, purchases or rentals of these zero-emission vehicles will help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 36,000 tonnes over the next twelve months.

Earlier this month, the Honorable Marc Garneau, Federal Minister of Transport, confirmed that over 14,000 purchases or rentals had been made under the government rebate program to date. The government also predicts that, for the life of these vehicles, Canada’s territory would be exempt from 429,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases.

In the first half of 2019, sales of zero-emission vehicles increased by 30% compared to the same period last year. In other words, the market share of zero-emission vehicles rose to 3% in the first half, compared to 2% for the same period in 2018.

Remember that the sales target for zero-emission vehicles must reach 10% of total sales by 2025, 30% in 2030 and 100% by 2040. The government rebate program, in effect since May 1st, provides rebates of up to $ 5,000 to consumers who choose to purchase or lease a zero-emission vehicle.
