New member exploring options with EV | Victoria and Area | Forum
January 24, 2017
Hi, I'm from Nanaimo and have been exploring options and studying up on EV and hybrid and PHEV technologys. I've got a deposit down on a Tesla 3 but probably won't end up getting one since I think I'd need more of a hatchback form rather than a sedan, also by the time they'd get here the costs in Cdn. dollars will skyrocket I'm sure.
I find the lack of available EVs on the island very discouraging...any that are common in Europe and the UK still aren't here. I'm waiting to have a look at the Hyundai Ioniqs probably interested in either the EV version or the PHEV. I'm told they'll arrive at the end of March. I'd be very interested in looking at a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV but apparently they've been promised since 2015 and still not in our markets yet! I'd look at a Bolt but no one has one on their lots yet (although, I think they're kind of ugly and I'm not too keen on a GM)
the only EVs around Nanaimo are the soul, leaf (only a 2016 model) and a couple of the really small commuters that I wouldn't be interested in.
Also with the shortage still of charging stations on the island, I'm really leaning towards a PHEV moreso i think.
I'll be perusing the forum here for info and advice. Thanks for the add to the membership
