Canada's diversified commercial vehicle market is catering to a wide range of industrial and logistical needs, focusing on enhancing efficiency and sustainability

  • The Canadian commercial vehicles market is characterized by its adaptability to technological advancements and changing regulatory environments. Light commercial vehicles (LCVs), such as vans and pickup trucks, are the backbone of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Canada, facilitating a wide range of activities from deliveries and trades to services. The demand for light commercial vehicles is driven by their versatility and efficiency, particularly in urban settings where maneuverability and parking are key considerations. The growing e-commerce industry has notably increased the need for delivery vehicles, thus propelling the demand for light commercial vehicles.
  • Medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles (M&HCVs), including rigid trucks and tractor-trailers, are critical to Canada's logistics and transportation infrastructure, enabling long-haul goods movement across the country and to the United States. The logistics and transportation sector's growth is closely tied to the health of the Canadian economy, with industries like construction, manufacturing, and retail directly influencing the demand for M&HCVs.
  • The bus segment in Canada encompasses city buses, coaches, and school buses, serving public transportation, long-distance travel, and student transport needs, respectively. Public transit agencies are increasingly investing in low- and zero-emission buses, including electric and hybrid models, in response to environmental policies and demand for cleaner, more sustainable transportation options from the community.

Canada Commercial Vehicles Market Trends

Electric vehicle sales are expected to increase, driven by government initiatives and increasing consumer adoption in Canada

  • The demand for electric vehicles has shown significant growth in recent years in Canada. Awareness regarding EVs, the advantages of electric vehicles over conventional vehicles, and governmental norms to adopt electric vehicles are gradually shifting the consumer toward electric vehicles. The government introduced the Climate Plan in March 2022, which mandates that at least 20% of new cars offered for sale by 2026 have zero emissions. The government has promised to invest USD 9.1 billion to achieve the target of the Climate Plan. Owing to factors such as these, the country witnessed a growth in the demand for electric cars by 31% in 2022 compared to 2021.
  • In order to control the emissions caused by commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses, the government of Canada proposed various measures and plans. In April 2022, the government released the Emissions Reduction Plan to boost the sales of cleaner vehicles. All heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks or buses on the road, should be running on clean fuel by 2035. As a result, the country witnessed growth in the sales of electric commercial vehicles by 119% in 2022 over 2021 across Canada.
  • The government of Canada has planned various investments to cut down pollution by electrifying the existing vehicles on the road. In March 2022, the government invested USD 199.6 million to retrofit the large and heavy trucks on the roads. Similar investments by the government in segments such as electric cars and electric buses are expected to enhance the demand for electric vehicles from 2024 to 2030 across Canada.

Keyword Definition
Electric Vehicle (EV) A vehicle which uses one or more electric motors for propulsion. Includes cars, buses, and trucks. This term includes all-electric vehicles or battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
BEV A BEV relies completely on a battery and a motor for propulsion. The battery in the vehicle must be charged by plugging it into an outlet or public charging station. BEVs do not have an ICE and hence are pollution-free. They have a low cost of operation and reduced engine noise as compared to conventional fuel engines. However, they have a shorter range and higher prices than their equivalent gasoline models.
PEV A plug-in electric vehicle is an electric vehicle that can be externally charged and generally includes all-electric vehicles as well as plug-in hybrids.
Plug-in Hybrid EV A vehicle that can be powered either by an ICE or an electric motor. In contrast to normal hybrid EVs, they can be charged externally.
Internal combustion engine An engine in which the burning of fuels occurs in a confined space called a combustion chamber. Usually run with gasoline/petrol or diesel.
Hybrid EV A vehicle powered by an ICE in combination with one or more electric motors that use energy stored in batteries. These are continually recharged with power from the ICE and regenerative braking.
Commercial Vehicles Commercial vehicles are motorized road vehicles designed for transporting people or goods. The category includes light commercial vehicles (LCVs) and medium and heavy-duty vehicles (M&HCV).
Passenger Vehicles Passenger cars are electric motor– or engine-driven vehicles with at least four wheels. These vehicles are used for the transport of passengers and comprise no more than eight seats in addition to the driver’s seat.
Light Commercial Vehicles Commercial vehicles that weigh less than 6,000 lb (Class 1) and in the range of 6,001–10,000 lb (Class 2) are covered under this category.
M&HDT Commercial vehicles that weigh in the range of 10,001–14,000 lb (Class 3), 14,001–16,000 lb (Class 4), 16,001–19,500 lb (Class 5), 19,501–26,000 lb (Class 6), 26,001–33,000 lb (Class 7) and above 33,001 lb (Class 8) are covered under this category.
Bus A mode of transportation that typically refers to a large vehicle designed to carry passengers over long distances. This includes transit bus, school bus, shuttle bus, and trolleybuses.
Diesel It includes vehicles that use diesel as their primary fuel. A diesel engine vehicle have a compression-ignited injection system rather than the spark-ignited system used by most gasoline vehicles. In such vehicles, fuel is injected into the combustion chamber and ignited by the high temperature achieved when gas is greatly compressed.
Gasoline It includes vehicles that use gas/petrol as their primary fuel. A gasoline car typically uses a spark-ignited internal combustion engine. In such vehicles, fuel is injected into either the intake manifold or the combustion chamber, where it is combined with air, and the air/fuel mixture is ignited by the spark from a spark plug.
LPG It includes vehicles that use LPG as their primary fuel. Both dedicated and bi-fuel LPG vehicles are considered under the scope of the study.
CNG It includes vehicles that use CNG as their primary fuel. These are vehicles that operate like gasoline-powered vehicles with spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
HEV All the electric vehicles that use batteries and an internal combustion engine (ICE) as their primary source for propulsion are considered under this category. HEVs generally use a diesel-electric powertrain and are also known as hybrid diesel-electric vehicles. An HEV converts the vehicle momentum (kinetic energy) into electricity that recharges the battery when the vehicle slows down or stops. The battery of HEV cannot be charged using plug-in devices.
PHEV PHEVs are powered by a battery as well as an ICE. The battery can be charged through either regenerative breaking using the ICE or by plugging into some external charging source. PHEVs have a better range than BEVs but are comparatively less eco-friendly.
Hatchback These are compact-sized cars with a hatch-type door provided at the rear end.
Sedan These are usually two- or four-door passenger cars, with a separate area provided at the rear end for luggage.
SUV Popularly known as SUVs, these cars come with four-wheel drive, and usually have high ground clearance. These cars can also be used as off-road vehicles.
MPV These are multi-purpose vehicles (also called minivans) designed to carry a larger number of passengers. They carry between five and seven people and have room for luggage too. They are usually taller than the average family saloon car, to provide greater headroom and ease of access, and they are usually front-wheel drive.
