Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be making an announcement Monday in Victoria, B.C. on electric vehicle infrastructure.
The federal government added a goal last week that one in five new cars sold will be zero emissions by 2026, and by 2030, the target is 60 per cent.
That is up from the 50 per cent goal the Liberals set less than a year ago.
About five per cent of vehicles sold in the first nine months of 2021 were battery-electric or plug-in hybrids, compared with about three per cent in both 2020 and 2019.
Canada needs to quadruple those sales in the next four years to hit the first target in 2026.
