Demonstration of the positive impact of a ZEV mandate on ZEV sales in Canada
EMC fully supports the government of Canada’s engagement towards adopting a national ZEV sales mandate in 2022 to guarantee sufficient supply and sales of EVs across Canada.
“These days, consumers are trapped between record high gas prices and little to no electric vehicle supply on dealers’ lots. They are told that they may have to wait between six months and two years to get a new electric vehicle, which is completely unacceptable because many consumers will simply choose a gas vehicle rather than wait. In states and provinces with ZEV mandates, consumers have access to and buy more EVs while people in other states and provinces get the leftovers of the world’s EV supply,” stated Daniel Breton, President & CEO of EMC.
