Legislation introduced to require all new cars sold in B.C. to be zero-emission by 2040


WATCH: In a move to phase out gas-powered vehicles, B.C. has introduced legislation that would require all new cars and trucks sold in the province to be zero emission by 2040. Richard Zussman reports.

The B.C. government will require all new vehicles sold in the province to be zero-emission by 2040. The plan will be phased in over time, with new legislation mandating that 10 per cent of new light-duty vehicle sales be zero-emission by 2025 and 30 per cent by 2030.

“British Columbians are eager to make the switch to zero-emission vehicles, but price and availability can be barriers,” Minister of Energy Michelle Mungall said.

“To reduce those barriers, we are providing rebates as part of CleanBC, and now we are bringing in legislation that will improve availability.” MORE
