Faire le plein à la maison, c’est facile

Filling up at home is easy!

No need to stop at the gas station anymore! Charging at home is easy and only takes a few seconds. Start every day with a full charge.

Dégivrer sans polluer

Defrost your car without polluting

For environmental reasons, many Québec municipalities limit idling to three minutes for thermal vehicles, but it isn’t an issue for electric vehicles. You can therefore remorselessly preheat your car before leaving!

In the case of plug-in hybrids, it is important to make sure that the vehicle is still plugged into the charging station when preheating to prevent the gasoline engine from starting.

Meilleur bilan environnemental

Improved environmental performance

Though higher at the manufacturing stage, a life cycle analysis indicates that the environmental impacts related to electric vehicles are lower than those related to thermal vehicles.

The environmental performance is positive in these four areas:

- human health,

- quality of ecosystems,

- climate change,

- depletion of fossil resources

Four ways to minimize environmental impacts

1 Covoiturage

When possible, use public or active transportation, carpool, or opt for car sharing.

2 Clefs

Keep your current vehicle for longer, especially if you don’t drive a lot and if your vehicle is energy efficient.

3 Electricité

If you are switching to an electric vehicle, choose a model whose range – and by extension battery size – is adapted to your actual needs.

4 Essence

If you change to a newer gas model, choose a smaller size that matches your actual needs and – most importantly – consumes the least amount of gasoline possible.

Rouler à l’énergie propre du Québec

Running on Québec’s clean energy

Energy produced in Québec is one of the cleanest in the world, 98% of which comes from renewable energy sources (source: Hydro-Québec).

Thus, the environmental impact of electric vehicles is particularly beneficial in Québec, considering the fight against climate change
