Quebec's Zero Emission Vehicle Regulations Impose Unique and Punitive Requirements



TORONTO, Dec. 27, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, Québec released the regulations which will implement the requirements outlined in the "Act to increase the number of zero-emission vehicles in Québec in order to reduce greenhouse gas and other pollutant emissions".

"These regulations create unique requirements and burden which may result in unintended consequences for consumers, automobile dealers, industry and ultimately, Québec's economy", said Mark Nantais, President of the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers' Association (CVMA). Furthermore, "Automakers are investing heavily in new electric and fuel cell vehicles and offering them for sale in steady and significantly increasing numbers. CVMA members believe that collaborative approaches focused on increasing vehicle charging infrastructure, enhancing consumer supports and consumer education are proving to be far more productive strategies for accelerating the consumer adoption of new zero emission vehicles"
