Drive Electric is a project of the New Brunswick Lung Association and has received funding from The NB Environmental Trust Fund and the ZEVAI funding from the Department of Natural Resources.
The New Brunswick Lung Association (NBLA) has been engaged in electric vehicle education and advocacy since 2014 with the inception of the Electric Vehicle Advisory Group in NB, which NBLA chairs.
Replacing a conventional vehicle with an electric vehicle reduces air pollutants such as NO2, SO2, particulate matter and VOCs. These reductions in air pollutants are measurable and are necessary to improve respiratory health. The Lung Association is invested in lowering the number of conventional vehicles on the road in order to improve lung health, and electric vehicles are a key aspect of that work.
