Today’s Solutions: January 30, 2023

Canada is ramping up its efforts to get more electric vehicles on its roads. British Columbia, the country’s third most populous province, has recently followed through on a plan to ban sales of new gasoline and diesel cars starting in 2040.

The legislation, which is known as the Zero-Emission Vehicles Act (ZEVA), could transform the Canadian province’s roads in the coming years. Under the new rule, 10 percent of all light-duty cars and trucks sold in BC by 2025 must be emission-free (electric, plug-in hybrid electric or hydrogen fuel cell) vehicles. By the time 2040 comes around, the province will completely prohibit the sale of gas-powered vehicles.

The move is designed to get automakers to send more plug-in vehicles to the province, where the market for cleaner vehicles still lags behind, despite high demand from British Columbians.
