The Natural Resources Canada is investing heavily to raise awareness about zero-emission vehicles, with some focus on medium-duty equipment. Their mission is to educate fleet owners on the options, costs, and benefits of beginning to convert to electric vehicles.
This initiative would help explain the different advantages like prices of electricity vs. fuel per mile, possible tax rebates, insurance discounts, lower maintenance costs, and more. From a market standpoint, consumption reduction could eventually contribute to stabilizing fuel, which is at an all-time high with no signs of slowing down. Hopefully, these steps will help fleets make the decision to start converting towards a greener future.
