As part of the work we are doing to update our 20-Year Resource Plan, we had a study done looking at how many electric vehicles (EVs) we may see in Yukon over the next two decades.
Key findings are that:
Plug-in electric vehicles has the potential to reduce petroleum consumption and greenhouse gas emissions dramatically, However there are a few challenges that at the moment make it difficult for Yukon to widely adopt EV technology.
Taking all these things into account, it does not appear at this time that there will be a high percentage of Yukoners purchasing EVs over the next 20 years. That being said, technology can change rapidly, so we will be closely watching the EV market for new developments.
