The Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Advancement Partnership brings together the automotive sector, environmental advocacy organizations and academic leaders to work alongside government to advance electric and hydrogen-powered vehicle technology and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


This voluntary partnership will help the province reach its goal — that five per cent of new passenger vehicles sold or leased in Ontario be electric or hydrogen-powered in 2020.

By working together, partners will have an opportunity to play a leading role in helping Ontario’s transportation sector move towards a low-carbon future.
