Your Ride- Powered By the Sun
Sleek. Sustainable. Sophisticated. It’s what we expect from all our electronics, appliances, homes and even our offices. At West 5, our vehicles are no exception. We don’t just want to live green; we want to drive green, too. Electric Vehicles (or EVs) produce zero tailpipe emissions and significantly minimize environmental impact. They’re well worth the investment and are set to replace traditional vehicles within the next few decades.
Here are our top tips for taking your ride into the future:
- Check out the Government of Ontario’s EV Incentives Program and capitalize on substantial subsidies when you’re in the market for a new EV or a new EV charger.
- Charge your EV overnight so that your battery is ready for wherever your morning takes you. Since every home at West 5 is built with rough-ins for EV charging stations, this one is a no-brainer.
- Take advantage of West 5’s Solar Parkades when you’re out and about. If you know you’ll be out browsing the shops, grabbing lunch at the new bistro or hitting up one of the festivals at Legacy Square, leave your car at a nearby Parkade. These charging stations will help shield your car from the elements while getting it ready for your next excursion.
- Charge your phone! Keep your phone charged (possibly right from inside your EV) so that you have access to your preferred EV app that can help you stay on top of your mileage and pinpoint nearby charging stations while you’re on the road.
It’s time to forget what it feels like to pump gas in the dead of winter. It’s time to forget what it feels like to be hit with unexpected gas price spikes. And it’s definitely time to forget the stench of exhaust.
