A decade ago, the notion of electric vehicle (EV) sales making a dent in British Columbia’s new car market was viewed by many as a just that – a notion. Today, much has changed because of an approach based on partnerships and collaboration. The CleanBC Go Electric Program (formerly the Clean Energy Vehicle Program) was launched to address key barriers such as vehicle cost, charging and refuelling infrastructure, and public awareness. Partner organizations including the New Car Dealers Association of BC (NCDA), provincial and local governments shared their support and commitment to produce substantial results, making BC one of the world leaders in EV adoption.
