EMC’s Weekly Message

Here’s what makes ZEV mandates work

Published last week, EMC authored an opinion piece for the Globe & Mail titled Here’s what makes ZEV mandates work. In it, we outline the definition of a ZEV mandate, and how a ZEV mandate will work in Canada’s auto sector by underlining that “Canadian dealers will not be forced to sell EVs if they do not want to, and Canadian consumers will not be forced to buy an EV if they do not want to. The ZEV mandate will only enhance car buyers’ freedom of choice by ensuring that EVs are an available option, which is hardly the case now as waiting lists for most EVs range from six months to three years.”

The article goes on to list reasons on why Canada needs to adopt a ZEV mandate, and provides specific examples that support the argument.
