Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, will require electric car sales from dealerships as part of accelerating his transition goals. Likewise, it expresses the desire to reduce the consumption of oil and gas to comply with the emission reduction plan.
This reduction plan has several phases, the first of which would be proposed for the year 2030. In this sense, the authorities announced that they will impose vehicle sales measures tending to comply with the planned points.
Thus, by 2026, 20% of new light-duty car sales would correspond to zero-emission vehicles (ZEV). Likewise, by the year 2030, these sales would occupy 60% and 100% by the year 2035. These are ambitious goals of the authorities that seek to clean the air without altering economic development.
Cars are one of the main objectives of the emission reduction plan
The importance that the Canadian government attaches to the transportation sector in its emissions reduction plan , It is notable. In the case of medium and heavy duty vehicles (MHDV), the authorities expect their sales, in electric mode, to increase 35% by 2030.
It is important to mention that the report on this plan does not consider this category as a mandatory mandate as it does with small cars. Despite this, to give greater impetus to the fulfillment of these goals, the government announced valuable stimuli.
One of them consists of the increase in the active reimbursement program on electric vehicles. It would take up to C$1.7 billion Canadian dollars, which is equivalent to approximately US$1.36 billion.
In this way, a large part of the users who wish to acquire one of these cars will obtain discount benefits paid by the State. With this step, Canada joins a considerable number of developed countries that have ambitious goals related to reducing their carbon footprint.
