The electrification of Canada’s vehicles is about to kick into high gear, and the 2023 Canadian International AutoShow is presenting all consumers need to know as they transition to a future of zero-emission vehicles.

The Canadian government has mandated that all new vehicles sold in the country by 2035 be zero-emission vehicles. Sales of EVs in Canada crossed the five per cent threshold last year, and patterns around the world have shown that number as the tipping point — market share of EVs is expected to skyrocket in the next few years. The AutoShow is responding to this with an exciting new feature — Electric City — and the largest indoor EV test track in Canada.

Electric City is the one-stop destination for AutoShow attendees to learn everything about automotive electrification. Sponsored by EnerSavings, it allows consumers to explore the charging options in market for EV owners and prospective buyers and learn more about the switch to electric vehicles.

The exhibit will feature an indoor micro-mobility test track where attendees can try a range of electric bikes from Amego EV, as well as the SARIT (Safe Affordable Reliable Innovative Transport) – the latest innovation from Magna founder Frank Stronach. Technology innovators from both the Canadian East and West coasts will be showcased with the launch of the all-new outdoor adventure vehicle from Potential Motors, as well as a self-propelled high-tech AI Stroller from Vancouver-based Gluxkind – a company most recently awarded honours at the CES Show in Las Vegas for Innovation

Electric City will also feature the Toronto Star EnerSavings Live Stage that will will host experts and industry insiders to discuss a variety of fascinating topics related to the automotive industry.
