British Columbia To Phase Out Non-Electric Car Sales By 2040
British Columbia also envisions a ban on new ICE sales
British Columbia’s premier John Horgan hinted that next year the government will introduce a requirement that all new light-duty cars and trucks sold in the province must be electric (zero-emission vehicles) by 2040.
“We need to make clean energy vehicles more affordable, available and convenient,”
The requirement will be implemented in stages:
- 10% from 2025
- 30% from 2030
- 100% from 2040
To help achieve the goal British Columbia intends to expand fast charging network and spend an addition $20 million CAD ($15 million) on plug-in incentives. Currently, consumers can get $5000 CAD for BEV and PHEV, while the purchase of FCV is granted $6000 CAD.
Quebec, on the other hand, targets 15.5% share for zero-emission sales by 2020.
