Vancouver climate fees for new car purchases could cost up to $1,000

Drivers who are purchasing new cars in 2023 and beyond will need to pay even more in climate fees.

City officials are calling it a pollution charge, and it could cost drivers up to $1,000, on top of the $45 overnight parking permit fees. Climate fees will be prescribed for high emission vehicles “to encourage decisions to choose low or zero emission vehicles.” A Vancouver City Council ruling on the matter is set to take place on October 5.

City staff suggests that it is positioning the move on pollution fees as a way to “accelerate the shift to electric vehicles” in the city. According to city staff, transportation accounts for nearly 40% of emissions in Vancouver. Drivers of gas-powered luxury vehicles, large SUVs, and full-sized pickup trucks will be paying the most.
