There are probably a whole lot of other EV’s too - but I’m just not familiar enough with them to recognize them at a distance.
The lack of EVs in a province which heavily subsidizes them is interesting, but apparently you're in the real British Columbia, not the Lower Mainland.There's at least two Teslas in this town of 100K people. No other straight EVs that I've seen or been able to identify. Definitely lots of Prii (or whatever the plural of Prius is), and a handful of other hybrids/plug in hybrids.
It's cold, remote, and the city sucks at plowing the streets, so pick'emup trucks and SUVs sell a lot better than cars to begin with.
Exactly.The lack of EVs in a province which heavily subsidizes them is interesting, but apparently you're in the real British Columbia, not the Lower Mainland.
You could buy a plug in one if you had a permit for the plug you used. There's a 50A welder plug beside the door (one of three in the shop, all are wired with 6/3 for future proofing too), so it's the easiest way, no need to pull wire or anything. Unfortunately, as I said, no permits were pulled when some horrible person wired the shop, so I'm in a bind on that.My utility required hardwire for the charger (EVSE) rebate, not plugin, so you'd want to double check on that.
I think that this is an interesting observation - we notice EVs, so just 2 or 3 in a parking lot with dozens of cars is perceived as "tons of them".Tons of them here in Phoenix, mostly Teslas but some Bolts and plugging hybrid Volts, Only a few Ford mustangs! Go to the grocery most any time and at lest 2 or 3 of them in the lot.
