The EV Society, which took its figures from Ontario’s dataset, said there were 1,088 EVs registered in Sudbury as of December, 2023, which it said was an increase of 49 per cent over the previous year.

That’s slightly higher than the Ontario-wide increase of 45 per cent, according to the EV Society.

This means EVs are “likely crucial” for tackling transport emissions, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
