The deployment of plug-in electric vehicles has the potential to help communities realize significant benefits. However, in cold weather climates, there are significant barriers to electric vehicle adoption. This paper conducts a market assessment in the Yukon Territory of Canada, including a review of the unique characteristics of the Yukon that may facilitate electric vehicle adoption, while also recognizing the challenges in the region. We find modest potential for electric vehicles in the Yukon, with comparably modest GHG reduction potential.
