Instant acceleration, quiet operation, smooth performance, and emissions-free. That’s the power and the promise of a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). Here at Nelson Toyota, we have an exciting inventory of BEVs brimming with intelligent and intuitive technologies – all while showing some love to the planet.
Instant torque means instant acceleration. With no transmission and no gears, the drive is exceptionally smooth. Thanks to electric motors, you’ll also enjoy a whisper-quiet ride.
Modern BEVs can travel further than you think. Toyota’s bZ4x, for example, has an estimated range of up to 406km for FWD models on a full charge. With more than 5,000 public charging stations across the country, it is easy to recharge along the way.
With zero stops to the pump, going electric is good for the planet and your wallet. Get even more savings if you recharge during off-peak hours.
Say goodbye to oil changes. With no engine or transmission, BEVs have fewer mechanical parts. That could add up to a lower cost of ownership, including service and maintenance costs.
The federal government’s iZEV program offers an incentive of up to $5,000 for purchasing a zero-emission vehicle.
Instead of an internal combustion engine, BEVs are powered by a large battery pack and high-output electric motors. Because it runs on electricity alone, BEVs emit no exhaust from the tailpipe. Through regenerative braking, BEV batteries can even be recharged as you drive. To experience the full potential of their electric-only operation, plug yours into a wall outlet or charging equipment until fully charged.
Charging a BEV is simple. Just plug it in at home, work, or any of the growing numbers of public charging stations across BC. Charging times will vary depending on whether you use Level 1, 2 or 3 charging.
Charge your BEV using a standard 120-volt AC wall socket. The slowest way to charge can also be the most convenient and requires no special equipment.
A 240-volt AC outlet can cut BEV charging times in half. Install one at home, or charge up at any Level 2 public charging station.
Direct Current (DC) Chargers (480V+) are currently the fastest vehicle charging method. Canada has over 5,000 public charging stations – 500 of which are Level 3 fast chargers.
