Automakers Commend Government for ZEV Rebates
Global Automakers of Canada praise the government for clarity provided to Canadians on Zero-Emission Vehicle Rebates.
Global Automakers of Canada (GAC) is the national industry association that represents the Canadian interests of 15 of the world’s most respected automakers, advocating for sound public policies to support a competitive and sustainable automotive industry.
GAC commended the government for clarifying the Transport Canada’s Incentive for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) that was announced in the March 19th Federal Budget to promote the adoption of ZEVs.
“Our members are pleased that Minister Garneau has clarified the parameters around the Budget incentive announcement and trust that they will kick-start consumer purchases of electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and hydrogen vehicles that had stalled with the uncertainty surrounding the application of the program,” said David Adams, President of the Global Automakers of Canada, a national trade association representing fifteen European and Asian brands in Canada.
“Knowing the parameters of the program will allow consumers to make informed purchase decisions, armed with the knowledge of both vehicle eligibility and the quantum of the incentive that will be applied to the purchase of their vehicle,” added Adams.
