In a series of Tweets, Trudeau highlighted several deals his government made this year that will boost local EV production.

“Since January, we’ve secured several historic manufacturing deals for electric vehicles, hybrids, and batteries – deals that are going to create and secure good jobs, help keep our air clean, and make sure our auto sector can keep thriving,” wrote the Prime Minister.

“We’re building an entire supply chain in Canada – from the development of critical minerals, to the production of batteries,” Trudeau added.

“In 2023, we’ll keep working to attract investment and support workers,” he concluded.

According to a recent study from Google, Canada’s local EV market showed impressive gains in 2022, surpassing a tipping point for EV adoption this year.

Canada also saw several new players enter the local EV market, including Lucid Motors, Rivian, and more.
