Transportation is the second largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada, accounting for a quarter of Canada's total GHG emissions. One way to reduce the amount of transportation-related GHG emissions is to put more zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the road.

A ZEV is a vehicle that has the potential to produce no tailpipe emissions. They can still have a conventional internal combustion engine but must also be able to operate without using it.

We consider the following vehicles to be ZEVs:

  • battery-electric
  • plug-in hybrid electric
  • fuel cell electric

In order to encourage the adoption of medium- and heavy-duty ZEVs by Canadian businesses, the Government of Canada launched the Incentives for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero-Emission Vehicles (iMHZEV) Program in July 2022. The iMHZEV Program can provide incentives of up to $200,000. Many different makes and models of eligible zero-emission vehicles for purchase or lease (12 months or more) are available to eligible organizations. For more information on the iMHZEV Program, please consult the « iMHZEV Program - Program overview » section below.
