In terms of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, electric cars and trucks are often cleaner than even the most efficient conventional vehicles. Exactly how clean depends on the type of vehicle and the source of the electricity.

As of Jan. 19, Transport Canada reports that more than $134 million in rebates have already been issued to 33,000 Canadians.

The federal electric vehicle rebate program offers up to $5,000 off the price of buying new electric and hybrid passenger vehicles. The program is funded with $300 million, on a first-come, first-served basis, over the next three years.

Transport Canada also says electric vehicle sales jumped 32 percent after the rebates were launched, compared to the same period the year before.
