Published on 

It's been nearly three years since the federal government promised a zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) standard that would phase out the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035. The government has just announced its final regulations, and Équiterre took a closer look. Let's see what we think!

Have a look at this brief in order to:

  • Understanding how the government could have been more ambitious

  • Understanding the role that automakers can play in achieving ZEV targets

  • Find out more about how to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles

These comments, submitted by Équiterre and Environmental Defence were forwarded to Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC).
