What you need to know before buying an electric vehicle

(EN) Sales of electric vehicles in Canada are growing 158 percent year over year, according to Fleet Carma, a clean tech company. However, many of us continue to hesitate when asking whether this choice is really practical. What you need to know before buying electric vehicle? Here’s what you need to know about an electric vehicle:


Are Electric Vehicles More Expensive?

More and more car manufacturers are launching electric models at all prices. The initial cost of an electric vehicle can average $ 15,000. It is more than the comparable gasoline model. But there are significant savings over time due to reduced maintenance and improved battery technology, and to the distributor (or not).


Are there places where I can charge my car?

The charging infrastructure is improving considerably and the private sector recognizes the need for it. This year, the federal government budget allocates $ 130 million over five years to concerns related to charging infrastructure, including funding for charging stations.


Am I restricted by the distance my car can travel?

Drivers of electric cars, or those considering purchasing such a vehicle, continue to worry that they may not be able to reach their destination due to lack of autonomy. These concerns will soon be a thing of the past, however, as recent government and private sector initiatives will make it easier for Canadians to charge their vehicles. The range of an electric vehicle can vary considerably from one model to another, from 200 kilometers to more than 600 kilometers per charge. Longer trips require some planning, but thanks to the improved infrastructure, you can go far.

 



Electric cars are becoming more accessible and attractive. Increasing charging stations across the country may well be the tipping point.
