Industry stakeholders are divided on the merits of a national ZEV mandate

At a crucial moment of transition for automakers and policy leaders, should Canada’s government decide to mandate zero-emission vehicle production levels?

Last April, Transport Canada launched a $300-million electric vehicle incentive program that provides rebates of up to $5,000 for consumers buying an eligible EV, and capital cost write-offs of up to $55,000 for business EV purchases. The initiative has been so popular that nearly half of the ministry’s three-year rebate budget has already been paid out.
