Why do you want to make the transition?


To make the best possible use of your time, we need to understand the motivation behind your decision to make the transition from an internal combustion engine (ICE) to a zero-emission vehicle.


  • Are you tired of paying for gas?
  • Want to do your part for the environment?
  • Want to experience the torque and unique driving experience that only electric can deliver


There is no right or wrong answer to these questions, but once you understand the motivation to buy an EV, it makes the next steps easier.


Things that impact the final price you pay for the EV


One of the biggest considerations when shopping for an EV is how much money you can afford to put towards the car.


The prices of EVs are coming down, but there is still some work before they are on the same level as their gas-powered counterparts.


Aside from trim and features, the biggest influencer on the final price you pay for the car is the range. The range is expressed in KM, but there are internal and external factors that impact how much range you actually get from the vehicle.


If you are living in a colder part of Canada, then you will need a vehicle with a greater range; this added range works as a buffer so you will never end up stuck on the side of the road.


Do you have adequate charging infrastructure in your home and community?


Suppose you are living in a more metropolitan area. In that case, you should be fine, but if you are living in a rural part of Canada which is most of the country outside of the GTA, Montreal, and other major cities.


There is a push to have charging stations installed throughout the country, but you need to factor this into your decision-making process.


How will you finance the purchase of the EV?


This is arguably the biggest question unless you are independently wealthy and can buy the vehicle outright.


There are websites that advertise EV financing, but those websites may not be able to secure the best terms on your behalf because, frankly, the website is not learning about your unique situation and needs.


The best approach is to contact a local dealership that offers EVs and schedule a test drive to make sure you select the vehicle that is going to best meet your needs.


The dealership also has access to the most aggressive financing terms, so when you make the decision to pull the trigger on the purchase, you have complete peace of mind knowing you are getting the best deal.


So, if you made it this far in the conversation, why not head over for a test drive today.
