Transportation is the second largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada, accounting for a quarter of Canada's total GHG emissions with almost half of these emissions coming from cars and light trucks. 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 ZEVs by Canadians and Canadian businesses, the Government of Canada launched the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) Program in May 2019. There are many different makes and models of eligible zero-emission vehicles for purchase or lease (over 12 months) that offer eligible consumers with an incentive of up to $5,000. For more information on the iZEV Program, please consult the “Program overview” section below.
