An Electrifying First: Ten percent of Canadian new vehicle registrations in 2023 were ZEVs

Toronto, Ontario — For the first time ever, more than 10 percent of all new vehicles registered in Canada during the past year were zero-emission vehicles (ZEV), including purely electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models.

According to Statistics Canada, the exact proportion of ZEV registrations in 2023 is 10.8 percent or 184,578 of a total 1.7 million.

Of all the provinces, British Columbia led with 20.2 percent of new vehicle registrations last year being ZEVs.

Quebec came second at 18.6 percent with 77,083 ZEVs registered, accounting for over 40 percent of the national total.

In Ontario, where no provincial rebates are available, ZEV uptake only reached a rise of 7.6 percent in 2023.

Statistics Canada also reported that three-quarters, or 75.6 percent, of all new ZEVs registered in Canada in the last year were full EVs and the remaining quarter, or 24,4 percent, were PHEVs.

When compared to 2022, these numbers represent an increase of 41.5 percent and 80.5 percent respectively.
