CVMA Statement on Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle sales mandate

December 21, 2022 PRESS RELEASE

Statement by Brian Kingston, President & CEO of the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association:

“The CVMA supports Canada’s target of 100% zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) sales by 2035 as our member companies are green tech leaders, investing billions into ZEV technology and production in Canada and beyond. 

“We will however continue to call on Minister Guilbeault and the federal government to first address the needs of Canadians for accessible ZEV charging, a reliable national electricity grid, and competitive purchase incentives to help them to afford the switch to electric transportation. Without these basic building blocks the proposed regulation from Minister Guilbeault will leave Canadians at the curb.”
