Nissan and Mitsubishi aren't the only options for people looking to drive an electric car. The two manufacturers offer new Battery Electric Vehicles available for sale in Canada.
But Canadian Electric Vehicles, a small company in Errington, just south of Parksville, has been manufacturing electric vehicles for the past 22 years. Most of their vehicles are commercial trucks, but they do offer conversion kits for do-it-yourself buyers. Apart from Canada, purchasers come from the U.S., Australia and as far afield as India and Turkey.
