Why Drive Electric?

greencarvector
Electric vehicles are the way of the future...actually, it's safe to now say that they're the way of the present. There are nearly 42,000 electric cars on the road in Canada and growing. Visit Plug N Drive to learn more including about fuel and maintenance cost savings and more!




Most electric vehicle models on the Canadian market travel 200-400 km on a single charge, but the majority of Canadians only drive a maximum of 60 Km per day. With close to 500 charging stations across Ontario (and more to come), you don’t have to worry about where to power up on your next trip. There are also a number of handy apps to help you navigate and find charging stations while you are on the road, most notably PlugShare and ChargeHub. 90% of all trips made on a weekday within Burlington are made by car -- 50% of these trips are 5 Km or less.

Growing knowledge and demand have also increased awareness and helped establish electric vehicles as the transportation option of choice. Plug N Drive’s Electric Vehicles Discovery Centre in North York, Ontario has electric vehicles on hand to test drive and experience. In addition to information on electric vehicles and incentive programs available. You can also check out the Driving electric vehicles uptake in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area report here.
