Zero Emission Vehicles Standards

Last updated: 26 September 2019
Objective of the standard

The standard seeks to spur the supply of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) and low-emission vehicles (LEVs) to afford Québec consumers access to greater numbers and a broader range of plug-in motor vehicles, which are the cleanest and the most technically advanced on the market.


Businesses targeted

Automakers that sell or lease more than 4 500 new vehicles on average per year (all light models) will be subject to the ZEV standard. Big automakers that sell or lease more than 20 000 new vehicles on average per year will, starting in the 2020 model year, be subject to requirements linked specifically to the sale of ZEVs.
