This study evaluates the potential environmental benefits of using an electric over a conventional vehicle in the province of Québec, Canada; a province characterised with an electric grid mix mostly based on hydroelectricity. To do so, we applied an environmental life cycle assessment approach whose results suggest that use of the electric vehicle should be promoted in the province of Québec but only if the vehicle lifetime is optimised.
