TORONTO, April 17, 2019 /CNW/ - The Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers' Association (CVMA) issued the following statement regarding today's Government of Canada announcement:
The Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers' Association (CVMA) welcomes the Government of Canada's commitment to invest $300 million over 3 years to support the purchase of zero-emission vehicles. This consumer incentive is critical to increased zero-emission vehicle adoption in Canada which, over time, will lead to decreased GHGs from the transportation sector. The program, in addition to the Budget 2019 commitment to expand the network of zero-emission vehicle charging and refueling stations, will encourage greater Canadian adoption of zero-emissions transportation. We look forward to collaborating with the government on the details of the program.
