Canadians have already driven the popularity of EVs to new heights,
The Canadian government has set ambitious federal targets for zero-emission vehicles reaching 100% of light-duty vehicles by 2040.Increasingly, metro jurisdictions are setting strict guidelines for infrastructure to accommodate these vehicles. Major Canadian cities like Toronto, Ontario are on their way toward meeting our nation’s green emission goals, requiring new developments to outfit 20 per cent of parking spaces with EV supply equipment, while designing the remaining spaces for future EV station installation.
