Electric vehicles move closer to widespread use, experts say - Business - CBC News
A pretty decent article, but did they say most (Canadian) EVs are fleet-owned?
I have no idea what they're talking about on that one. I've not been seeing electric fleet vehicles around here anyway.
I wondered about that myself. Perhaps McMaster has some data to support that?
Here are some photos that I posted from the PowerStream DCFC launch event: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.835105166540078.1073741850.118788858171716&type=1
It is an ABB dual-standard CHAdeMO/CCS combo unit.
The Powerstream charger is a level 3 Chademo and J1772 coupler.
Does this mean we can charge?
I assumed the second plug was CCS/SAE Combo Edit: [as stated by eMileage], or whatever they're calling the standard used by BMW (and a few other companies too, but which don't sell EVs to individuals in Canada).
I wonder what 3rd-party manufacturer will be the 1st to offer a Tesla connector on their 25-50kW stations.
Sadly, Ms. Yates seems like one of those "experts" who neither drives, nor has much in the way of personal experience with EV's...that "fleet-owned" statement is absurd at best...
She also appears to grossly misunderstand the "leaving your garage with a full battery after an overnight charge" benefit...her quote..
"The map does show hundreds, perhaps even thousands of level 2 charging stations in Canada. But almost all of those will take four hours to charge a car."
