Affordable, Electric cars are the future and the future is now!The Beat 92.5 for Équiterre

When it comes to electric cars, Quebecers are leading the way for the rest of the country. 40% of the electric vehicles (EV) in Canada are in Quebec. Some people opt for electric for environmental reasons, but it’s becoming increasingly common to choose electric for economic and convenience reasons.

Slowly but surely, the many myths that have prevented people from choosing electric are being busted. Let’s keep it going! Here are some of the great things about EVs, that you may not know about.

Subsidies from the governments of Quebec and Canada (up to $13,000) have brought the cost of some models on par with their gas-powered equivalents. So no more excuses that EVs are too expensive on purchase, because the savings only get better from there.

Constantly checking gas prices for the optimal time to fill up? With an EV, you’ll never have to worry again! It’ll cost you $2/100 km. Yes, that’s a fixed cost of two dollars per hundred kilometers through charging your EV at home 95% of the time.

Including other cost savings (i.e. lower maintenance costs), EV drivers save an approximate $2,000 per 20,000 km.  

FIND THE EV THAT BEST SUITS YOUR NEEDS

Équiterre’s Running Electric website features a calculator to help find the right vehicle for you. Simply enter your annual mileage, daily mileage, price range and number of seats required, and you will get a list of the models available in Quebec, with plenty of other information. There’s also a list of upcoming test drive opportunities.

Cat Spencer recently got into an electric car with a Running Electric expert. His reaction: “This is amazing.”
