As electric vehicles slowly take over Canadian roads, some experts warn that the gas station may be nearing its end. Some industry-watchers say diversification will be key to survival in the decades to come. The federal government is mandating that all new cars and light-duty trucks sold in the country be zero-emission vehicles by 2035.
Vehicles will have to include battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, and plug-in hybrid electric. Currently, zero-emission vehicles are a small but growing percentage of the Canadian vehicle market. Out of 1.64 million new vehicles registered in 2021, 5.2 per cent were zero-emission vehicles, according to the federal government.
There have been growing options for these types of vehicles as more automotive companies are going electric. There will not be a complete ban of gas powered cars in 2035. People will still be able to buy ones that are used, or they can buy a plug-in hybrid.
