The availability of electric drive vehicles in the models we require for City Operations continues to be very limited, and the allocation of new vehicles for the Canadian market is restricted mostly to Quebec and British Columbia where the provincial governments offer financial incentives to purchasers. While the progress on this KPI did not advance in 2021, staff worked throughout the year to plan and prepare tenders for the purchase of four electric buses and four electric passenger cars which are now anticipated to arrive in 2022 and will further advance the progress of this KPI. The electric bus pilot at Guelph Transit will indicate if we should continue to order new electric buses beyond 2022.
