New poll shows that people from British Colombia are the most likely to buy a lower emission vehicle.



Last update:

Shell Canada and HTEC Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation (HTEC) are responding to increased demand from British Columbians for lower emission vehicles with the opening of their second hydrogen fuelling station in Burnaby, British Columbia (B.C.).

New research conducted by Shell in collaboration with polling firm Ipsos indicates British Columbians are more likely than other Canadians to consider a low emission vehicle for their next purchase or lease.

“We know Canadians are increasingly looking for smart ways to reduce their carbon footprint,” says OIiver Bishop, General Manager of Hydrogen for Shell. “Shell is responsive to customer demands and we are excited to offer drivers of emission-free hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles another refuelling option in B.C.”

One out of three British Columbians are planning to purchase or lease a new vehicle within the next two years, according to the study.

Shell and HTEC opened Canada’s first retail hydrogen refuelling station in 2018 in Vancouver. Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles convert hydrogen into electricity and produce only heat and water when driven.
