Introducing the future of electric vehicles in London.
what is ev?
EV or electric vehicle is an acronym for a vehicle that is fully or partially powered by electricity. When it comes to an electric vehicle in London there are two main types; battery-electric and plug-in hybrid electric. In comparison, a conventional vehicle uses an internal combustion engine that runs on fossil fuels such as petrol or diesel.
However, the standard electric vehicle runs off a lithium-ion battery that doesn't produce fossil fuels. Battery-electric vehicles can charge overnight and provides enough range for your typical journey. Rather than relying on an electric motor, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle uses a mixture of fossil fuels and a lithium-ion battery for power. Therefore, this allows you to travel a greater distance with traditional fuel when it's time for your battery to charge.
By taking advantage of EV, you are eligible for an incentive up to $5,000 from the Government of Canada.If you would like to learn more about the Incentives for Zero-Emissions Vehicle Program (iZEV) click here!
how do electric vehicles help the environment?
Overall, think about how many vehicles in the world are powered by traditional fuels. Introducing electric vehicles in London simply reduces the number of greenhouse gases and air pollutants that contribute to climate change. Conventional vehicles produce carbon dioxide because they rely on components such as fuel tanks, fuel lines, tailpipes, etc. However, the standard battery-electric vehicle produces no carbon dioxide because they don't rely on these components that produce harmful emissions.
