Battery-electric vehicles

Most battery-electric vehicles in North America today are found in California, due to that state's stringent emissions standards and the availability of emissions credits.

Hybrid electric vehicles

A limited range of hybrid electric vehicles are commercially available in Canada. More are scheduled to be introduced over the next few years.
