EV READINESS DASHBOARD

Canada’s auto manufacturing companies, importers, and dealers are moving aggressively to introduce a full range of new electric vehicles (EVs) for Canadians. Incentive supports and charging infrastructure for Canadians are the keys to EV adoption and governments need to do more. This dashboard illustrates the incentive and charging gaps that need to be addressed if EV adoption is to keep pace with climate change targets.

 

The auto sector is calling on governments across Canada to be more ambitious and accountable to Canadians on the availability of sufficient consumer incentives to help offset the higher cost of EVs and accessible EV charging infrastructure to make EV driving practical for all Canadians, whether they live in apartments with limited charging options or in rural areas with longer highway commutes.
