The Transport sector is responsible for more than 70% of all fuel consumption in Québec.
By 2015, Québec hopes to reduce its annual fuel consumption by two million gasoline equivalent tonnes (PET), i.e. the same amount consumed by 1.7 million light duty vehicles every year.

Québec has already begun electrifying transportation. With the Electric Vehicles 2011-2020 Action Plan, Québec is going even futher!
The Drive Electric Program offers a purchase/lease rebate for individuals, businesses and Québec municipalities that want to acquire an all-electric or hybrid vehicle. In 2012 the rebate amount ranges from $5,000 to $8,000 for all-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. A $1,000 rebate is available for non-plug-in hybrid.
Under this program, you can also apply for financial assistance for the purchase and installation of a 240 volt charging station at your home.
This program was officially launched on January 1, 2012. It will be in place until December 31, 2015. It replaces the tax credit program for purchasing or leasing a new fuel-efficient vehicle that was in place from 2009 to 2011.
