Hybrid & Electric Vehicles: Canada

This report forecasts hybrid and electric vehicle (HEV) demand and production in units in Canada to 2022 and 2027. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: full hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric, and fuel cell electric. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: light vehicles, and medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; production and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2012 and 2017.

Excluded from the scope of this report are micro hybrids, in which vehicle propulsion is generated from an internal combustion engine but some technological features found in hybrid vehicles – specifically start-stop systems – are used to improve fuel economy. Because these vehicles do not use an electric motor for propulsion, they fall outside the scope of this report.
