Canada's Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) sales targets

Canada is committed to decarbonizing the country's transportation sector and becoming a global leader in zero-emission vehicles (ZEV). In the last few years, we have seen a steady growth of Canada’s ZEV market share. Based on Transport Canada’s analysis of data acquired from IHS Markit, the ZEV share of light-duty vehicles sales was 3.8% in 2020, up from 3.1% in 2019 and 2.3% in 2018.

To move to decarbonization of the transportation sector, we need significantly more ZEVs on the road. That is why the Government of Canada is committing to a mandatory 100% zero-emission vehicle sales target by 2035.
