Bruce Stout, a Director and Past-President of the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association, has been driving a 100 percent Battery Powered Electric Vehicle (BEV) since March 2013. In May of 2015, Bruce and his wife Susan, drove their Tesla Model S, the 18,000 Kilometers, from Vancouver to Halifax and back, using only Canadian charging stations at an estimated cost of $36.
As overall winners of the E-Mazing race they visited more charging stations than any other driver during the one-month period of this cross Canada rally. This is a great opportunity to get your questions answered about BEVs from someone who has driven BEVs over 100,000 kilometers.
