The road ahead to low-carbon mobility

A Feebate System for Canada’s Light-Duty Vehicle Segment

Équiterre commissioned Horizon Advisors to assess the efficacy of a vehicle feebate system in reducing the tailpipe emissions of Canada’s light-duty vehicle (LDV) segment. Horizon Advisors reviewed Canada’s separately operated bonus-malus programs, which include fees (or a ‘malus’) on high-emitting vehicles through the federal Green Levy program and rebates (or a ‘bonus’) for zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) and plugin hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) through the government’s iZEV program. Best practices among leading jurisdictions that have demonstrated improvements in average LDV emissions through a feebate system as well as ZEV and PHEV market uptake were examined.
