Times are changing fast in the transportation market, and we are pumped to know that EV’s are growing in popularity and here to stay. The selection of plug-in electric vehicles is growing at a furious pace, with legacy automakers like Porsche, Jaguar, Chevrolet, Fiat, Toyota, Kia, Hyundai and a host of others dedicating huge resources to the electrification of their new models. Although EV’s have been out of reach for many since their re-introduction around 2011, they are now readily available on the used market at many dealers across our country. Battery capacities continue to grow with each year, and as a result, range is increasing. We see more and more EV on the road these days. Look for Motorize cars and staff at the Victoria Santa Claus parade on Nov 24 at 5:00pm. You can expect a very clean and quiet display. 😉
Charging infrastructure improvements can be seen right here on Vancouver Island with new level 2 stations all but covering the map. BC Hydro is looking for future customers and investing in DC fast charge stations to help promote the adoption of EVs in their market. Did you know BC Hydro commented recently that regional power consumption is trending downward? We are definitely living in the information age – Motorize is here to help you differentiate between the noise and the news. For all the progress made in the electric vehicle marketplace, there is an almost-equal wave of misinformation from the gas and oil industry. Here, you will find accurate and relevant information to help you stay up to date with all the exciting things happening.
On a local note, Motorize is teaming up with the well-attended Victoria Electric Vehicle Club (http://victorialeafclub.com) to organize a community rally. Watch out for more info and get ready to explore your city and surrounding areas with fellow EVers.
