Canada Electric Vehicle Market Analysis- Insights into Competitive Landscape

In the forecast period from 2024 to 2028, the Canada Electric Vehicle Markeis poised for substantial growth, with an anticipated market size soaring from 2022's 115.90 thousand units to new heights. With a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.97% projected between 2023 and 2028, the sector is displaying robust expansion. Among the various segments, the passenger car category emerges as the fastest-growing segment, showcasing promising prospects. As technological advancements and consumer preferences evolve, the automotive landscape is primed for innovation and transformation, offering lucrative opportunities for manufacturers and investors alike in the coming years.

The most important role in the growth of electric vehicles in any country is of the government initiatives and their policies. The Canadian government has taken various measures regarding this. The government has proposed the incentive for zero emission vehicle (iZEV) for consumers in which the government will provide the rebate of 5000 USD to anyone who is buying or leasing a battery electric vehicle, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell based electric vehicle to make these vehicles more affordable to people.

ZEVIP is also introduced by the government to help stimulate the charging infrastructure’s development in the country. Another important action taken by the government is implementing the carbon tax in the country. The carbon pricing system was introduced in 2019 in Canada. Since then, it has been increasing and it is expected to increase further in the forecast years. This is helping in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions in the provinces that don’t have separate policies regarding carbon emissions.

Canada electric vehicle is first segmented by vehicle types which includes two-wheelers, passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and medium & heavy commercial vehicles. Sales of commercial vehicles are higher in Canada as compared to other types of vehicles and especially light-duty commercial vehicles, such as pickup trucks because of the country’s cultural differences, weather conditions, their off-roading capabilities, and more cabin space with higher stance. But most of the electrification is taking place in two-wheelers and passenger cars around the world. However, the weather and geographical landscape limit the market of two-wheelers in the country. Therefore, most of the electric vehicle’s sales are occurring in passenger car segments.

In the propulsion type segment, battery electric vehicle has the highest market share because the initial developments were started for vehicles purely based on electric batteries and therefore, most of the technological developments have taken place for battery electric vehicles. Moreover, government policies and incentives are devised particularly for these vehicles only. Further, electric vehicles are plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and fuel-cell electric vehicles. Most of the sales in Canada are currently captured by battery electric vehicles as compared to other types of vehicles. This is followed by the plug-in electric vehicles. However, fuel-cell electric vehicles lag in sales as this technology is relatively new and does not have any significant technological advancements. Moreover, the upfront cost of these types of vehicles is also higher. Apart from this, the lack of hydrogen refueling infrastructure makes consumers more hesitant to purchase these vehicles.

Moreover, electric vehicle sales are not uniform throughout the country, instead, it is concentrated in some provinces which make up most of the electric vehicle sales in the country. These differences are generated because of different incentives, policies, and population density which obviously further depends upon the purchasing power of people in that area. As of now, most of the electric vehicle sales occurred in British Columbia and Quebec, followed by Ontario. Moreover, several provinces provide additional incentives to boost electric vehicle sales in their area, for instance, Quebec provides an aggregate rebate of approximately USD 13000 while purchasing electric vehicles, whereas this drops to USD 5000 in Prairie province. This figure goes up to USD 8000 in British Columbia.

Battery manufacturing opportunities in Canada are growing consistently over the past few years. And this is augmented by the fact that Canada has abundant sources of battery raw materials. Thus, from all the above-mentioned statements, it can be stated that the electric vehicle market will grow in the upcoming years.
