Electric car doesn't go far?

A recent survey has found British Columbians are hesitant to buy electric vehicles because they are wary about how far it will be able to go on one charge.

BC Hydro conducted the survey with potential electric vehicle consumers, and nearly 70 per cent of them believe the vehicles can’t be taken out of town.

BC Hydro has 58 fast-charging stations throughout the province—the majority within 300 metres of a major road or highway—that would allow travellers to get from Tofino to the Alberta border. There are a total of 270 fast-charging stations throughout the province, including those in the BC Hydro network.
