New numbers released by Electric Mobility Canada show that a full 10 per cent of all new passenger vehicles sold in the province fall into the the ZEV category, well above the national average of 3.5 per cent. Quebec is the next closest province at seven per cent.
Al Cormier, founding president of Electric Mobility Canada, said B.C.’s unique combination of incentive programs, policies and legislation around ZEVs has been effective.
“All that has provided incentives and encouragements to buyers of vehicles in B.C., to researchers, to companies. So generally there are great conditions to promote electric vehicle sales and it’s working,” said Cormier.
