    With a keen eye on a cleaner future, Canada’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers' Association (APMA) has revealed the designs for its very own electric vehicle. To be the first original Canadian-built zero-emissions car, the Project Arrow Concept is hoped to not just culminate in an environmentally-friendly, next-gen vehicle, but help fast-track the country’s capacity to produce electric cars.

    Project Arrow was actually announced back in January at CES 2020, with the first phase of the program calling for design submissions for the zero-emissions vehicle. APMA has now settled on a winning design dreamt up by researchers at Carleton University’s School of Industrial Design in Ontario, which it says “properly showcases Canada’s leadership in this space.”

    There are no specs to speak of at this time, but it is hoped the effort to turn this virtual design into a real vehicle will bring about some key improvements across Canada’s automotive sector. This includes increasing its development capacity of electric vehicles, promoting the growth of the electric vehicle supply chain and bringing new support to research and development of key technologies in academic environments.

    It'll never happen with the States around...

    Edit: Or better yet it will happen, then the States will swoop in and either buy up everything or use politics to force all scientists and tech Stateside.
