It is reported that the Canadian government is preparing to introduce new regulations that will require all new cars sold in the country to be zero-emission by the year 2035.

Citing statements from senior government officials, Local Canadian media reports that the Canadian government is set to announce the Electric Vehicle Availability Standard in the coming days. The aim of this regulation is to gradually phase out the sale of new ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicles.

The reports also state that the new regulations will mandate that zero-emission vehicles, including battery electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, must constitute 20% of all new car sales by 2026, 60% by 2030, and reach 100% by 2035.

Concerns have been raised that the new policy may lead automakers to preferentially direct their vehicle sales to other markets, potentially causing a shortage of electric cars, trucks, and SUVs in the Canadian market. To address this, the Canadian government is considering implementing policies to ensure that local consumers can still purchase new vehicles.

In September of this year, the United Kingdom introduced a similar electric vehicle sales mandate with a goal similar to Canada’s, aiming for 100% sales by 2035. In the United States, several states, including New York and California, have also enacted similar regulations for electric vehicle sales.

In April of this year, the Biden administration in the United States proposed new emissions limits, effectively ensuring that two-thirds of cars sold by 2032 would be electric vehicles.
