Weekly Memo

1. “Le guide pratique de la voiture électrique… et plus !” is coming!

After several months of delay due to COVID, “Le guide pratique de la voiture électrique… et plus !” will be available on Earth Day, April 22. Daniel Breton, CEO of Electric Mobility Canada, is the main author.

  1. The ABC’s of Electric Vehicles

  2. Partial and full electric vehicle tests

3. Saskatchewan, going against the grain.

…While the vast majority of states are accelerating support for the electrification of transportation, Saskatchewan, Canada’s #1 province for the increase of its GHG emissions (+71% between 1990 and 2018), has just announced a $150 annual tax for the 403 electric vehicles on its territory. This brings to the forefront the question of the obsolescence of the current road financing model.

4. April 19: EMC’s coverage of Canada’s budget!

Next week, EMC’s team will be following the federal budget closely and will get back to you quickly with all the relevant information.
