9. Outpace future legislation

The politics of carbon-emitting vehicles are evolving and electrification could become a requirement for access to contracts or the right to operate in certain jurisdictions in the not-so-distant future. 

For example, Montreal has pledged to implement a low-emissions zone in its downtown core by 2030. The federal government already moved up its mandate by 5 years to 2035 (for all light-duty vehicle sales). In order to comply with changing regulations, organizations have to consider how they’ll conduct operations going forward.
