Canadians want majority of new cars to be electric, expect it in future, survey says

A new poll of driving-age Canadians shows strong support for electric cars, and strong expectations that EVs will become the norm in the future.

The poll, conducted by Clean Energy Canada, shows that 64 percent of Canadians would prefer electric vehicles to be the majority of vehicles sold in the future. Furthermore, 72 percent of Canadians believe EVs will become the majority of cars sold around the world.

Clean Energy Canada breaks down the respondents by province, generation, and political party — of all these segments, only a majority of Conservative voters don’t want the majority of cars sold to be EVs. And even that’s close, as 46 percent of those voters prefer an EV majority.
