By 2035, All New Cars Will Have to Be Green

Canada became the latest country to ban sales of combustion engine cars as part of its broader plan to reduce its emissions, review its energy production plan, and reach net zero by 2050.

According to its Emissions Reduction Plan, the government will require all new passenger cars to all be zero-emissions vehicles by 2035 with a 20% target by 2026 and a 60% one by 2030.

Canada is offering $1.36 billion to extend incentives for buying greener vehicles. Currently, a $4,010 rebate is offered for electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, and hydrogen fuel cell cars. The country wishes to reduce its emission between 40 and 50% below 2005 levels by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. To achieve those goals, the northern country needs to support renewable energy projects, shrink oil industry emissions, and develop nature-based climate solutions.
