Canada will Declare that by 2035, all New Cars Must have Zero Emissions

According to a senior government source, Canada is expected to declare this week that all new automobiles must have zero emissions by 2035. Ottawa is also scheduled to disclose new laws, making Canada the latest country in the world to push for electrification.

According to the source, who confirmed earlier media stories, the new regulations, known as the Electric Vehicle Availability Standard, will assist assure supply is available to the Canadian market and cut wait times to purchase an electric vehicle.

British Columbia and Quebec, two Canadian provinces, already have similar controlled sales targets.

According to the anonymous source, 20 percent of all new car sales in 2026, 60 percent in 2030, and 100 percent in 2035 must consist of zero-emission vehicles, which include hydrogen, battery-electric, and plug-in types.

The environment ministry in Canada declined to comment.

According to the Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA), worldwide EV sales currently account for roughly 13% of all vehicle sales. By the end of the decade, they are expected to account for between 40 and 45 percent of the market.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives in the United States voted earlier this month to prevent the Biden administration from implementing strict auto pollution laws that will cause 67% of new cars to be electric by 2032. The White House threatened to veto the measure.

In the first half of 2023, market leader Tesla sold 325,291 cars in the US. With 34,943, General Motors’ Chevrolet brand came in a far second, behind Ford, Hyundai, and Rivian.
