Ontarians should consider making the switch to an EV this year

Ontarians who are undecided about switching from a traditional gas-powered car to an electric car have several compelling reasons to do so.

Some automakers and the Ontario government are offering incentives to help you pay for the installation of a level 2 charger at your home by a qualified electrician.

Level 3 charging is available at locations such as Petro Canada and others. These stations require a little price for network access, but they provide the best charging speeds.

As EVs gain popularity in Canada, more lenders enter the market, competing for your business.

As the market for electric vehicles (EVs) expands, lenders will shift away from exclusively financing gas-powered automobiles and toward hybrids and EVs, which are here to stay.

Because the Ontario car market is heating up, now is a good time to consider making the switch.
