Benefits of Electric Vehicles (EVs):

  • EVs don't release air pollution from their exhaust, which leads to better air quality for everyone. Air pollution can cause health impacts such as asthma and cardiovascular or immune system problems.
  • EVs don't contribute greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere, which reduces the impact on climate change. In Ontario, transportation is one of the biggest sources of GHGs emissions and is a key target area for reduction.
  • EVs are very quiet when driven because the electric motor doesn't make noise.
  • Using electricity to fuel your car is much cheaper than buying gasoline or diesel for your vehicle. According to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, EVs are up to eight times cheaper to fuel than gasoline cars!
