Canada will recoup its investment in electric vehicle battery factories in 20 years

The Canadian government expects to pay off its investments in the two electric vehicle (EV) battery factories built by Volkswagen and Stellantis-LG Electric Solutions in about 20 years, according to the country’s Parliamentary Budget Office. According to Yves Giroux, head of the parliamentary budget office, the tax revenue that the federal and state governments will generate from these facilities between 2024 and 2043 will be equal to the total amount of production subsidies granted.

Canada’s Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said this analysis shows these investments will be beneficial for Canadians, the automotive sector and workers. To attract the German automaker, the federal governments of Canada and Ontario offered up to C$15 billion ($11.3 billion) in performance incentives for Stellantis-LG Energy Solution, as well as C$13 billion in manufacturing tax credits and a $700 million grant CAD on.

Canada has abundant mineral resources such as lithium, nickel and cobalt, which are essential for the production of electric vehicle batteries. With a booming mining sector, the country is actively seeking to attract companies operating in all aspects of the electric vehicle supply chain as global efforts to reduce carbon emissions continue.

This investment in electric vehicle battery factories not only positions Canada as a key player in the transition to electric mobility, but also helps create jobs and stimulate economic growth. This highlights the country’s commitment to sustainability and its recognition of the importance of the electric vehicle industry in promoting a greener future.
