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.
