Tax on Pickup Trucks
Recently, the federal Government unveiled its 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan. The plan includes the following recommendation regarding the Green Levy for Fuel Inefficient Vehicles:
“Broaden Canada’s existing Green Levy (Excise Tax) for Fuel Inefficient Vehicles to include additional ICE [internal combustion engine] vehicle types, such as pickup trucks. A sliding scale for the implementation of this Green Levy should be developed based on the emissions produced from different vehicles. Revenue from a broadened Green Levy could increase available funding for ZEV incentives for individuals and organizations without limiting the fleet size and while encouraging smaller vehicles of all fuel types.”
I want to hear from you on this proposed tax on pickup trucks. The proposal can be found on page 192 of the 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, which you can read here.
