Electric Vehicles

In Prince Edward Island, 48 per cent of greenhouse emissions come from transportation. A gas powered vehicle produces about 3.61 tonnes of CO2 a year whereas an electric vehicle produces about 0.89 tonnes of CO2 a year.

Electric vehicles are an excellent way to help reduce CO2 emissions. The chart below provides information to help you better understand electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Prince Edward Island has more than 30 charging stations for electric vehicles across the province from tip to tip. All of these stations are level two stations meaning they charge much faster than using a regular wall outlet.

To learn more about electric vehicles, visit Plug 'n Drive - a non-profit organization committed to accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles to maximize environmental and economic benefits.
