Are electric vehicles at a tipping point in Canada?
The price of gasoline is spiking and suddenly so is demand for electric vehicles. Though Canada has been behind its peers when it comes to EV adoption, with 5% of new vehicle purchases being electric in 2021, that could change quickly. Are we at a tipping point? This episode shares the latest data on market trends, cost comparisons, supply shortages, charging installation and equity issues.

Guests: Joanna Kyriazis (Clean Energy Canada) & Jonathan Rubin (University of Maine)
