Whether you own an EV or you're thinking about buying one, here's how to avoid any potential bumps in the road.
6 powerful perks
Less expensive than gas
Save hundreds of dollars a year on fuel while reducing maintenance costs too.*
Better for the environment
EVs produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gas-fuelled cars.
No more range anxiety
Drive 140-450 km on a single charge. That’s like driving from Toronto to Peterborough!
Enjoy green benefits
Green licence plates provide access to certain HOV lanes to help get you to your destination faster.
Easy and convenient
Quick chargers can provide a full battery charge in less than an hour – and if you need a boost, public charging stations are available province-wide.
*Driving a 1.5L 4-cylinder Honda Civic 20,000 km/year will cost $1,265 in gasoline, based on $0.93/l. Driving a Nissan Leaf the same distance will cost $484 to charge, based on $0.13/kWh. That's a savings of $781 per year.
