Canada's Transportation Sector in Numbers (2013-2017)

Is Canada Ready to Electricity its Transportation Sector?

If Canada is thinking of electrifying its transportation sector, the below figures provided by Statistics Canada on Canada's transportation sector provides a clearer picture of the immensity of the challenge.  Even with federal and/or provincial incentives in the form of rebates for electric car purchasers requires the transportation infrastructure to support a massive fleet of electric vehicles. Indeed, the now solidly entrenched transportation infrastructure did not evolve with climate change or electric vehicles in mind.  Gas stations, above and underground parking lots, roadways and highways that developed in Canada over the last 150 years will certainly need a serious 'makeover'.  In provinces like Ontario, one further issue is the extent to which the already stretched electricity grid supply can support a rapidly growing fleet of electric vehicles.
