take a leading role in vehicle electrification and lightweighting, including:

$16.7 million for Electrovaya of Mississauga (Ontario) to develop and manufacture
lithium-ion batteries

$48.4 million for Magna International and Magna E-Car to develop advanced
lightweighting technology, electrification of vehicle components and battery
development.

$2 million for Dana Canada to develop ‘Thermal Management Systems’ for hybrids
and electric vehicles

$70.8 million to Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Canada on a spectrum of initiatives,
including production of the RAV4 EV

Government Commitments
•
•
•
•
Commitment to fight climate change and improve air quality
 The Ontario government aims to have one out of every 20 vehicles driven in
Ontario to be electrically powered by 2020, this would support the
greenhouse gas emissions target for 2020 set out in our Go Green Action
plan. Contribution may be up to 0.6 MT (600,000 tonnes) of GHG savings by
2020
Reducing the environmental impact of the Ontario government’s operations

Commitment to purchase 500 electric vehicles for the Ontario Public Service
(OPS) passenger fleet by 2020

Contributes to the OPS goal of an annual 5% reduction in fuel consumption
Supporting alignment and direction of Ontario’s auto sector
 ‘Greener’, more sustainable and more competitive with a strong focus on
high value- added development and production of innovative auto parts and
technologies
Supporting the government’s research and innovation agenda

Programs applicable to the research, development and commercialization of
electric vehicles and their components parts

Commitment to Getting Electric Vehicles
(EVs) on the Road
The Government of Ontario has been active in encouraging consumer
adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs).
Developments include:
 Consumer Incentives: Rebates of $5,000 - $8,500 offered to consumers to
purchase electric vehicles
 EV Infrastructure Fund: On May 4th 2012, Ontario released a Request for
Information (RFI) on electric vehicle infrastructure, including home and public
charging. The RFI closed on June 4th 2012. The RFI results are currently being
analyzed
 Access to High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lanes: EVs are provided “green”
license plates for EVs to drive in commuter lanes (HOV) with one occupant
 Ontario is establishing a series of charging locations at GO commuter train
stations in the Greater Toronto Area (Aurora, Lincolnville, Whitby in 2011 and
Ajax, Erindale, Oakville, Burlington in 2012)
