Power cars and install internal combustion engines on the side of the road.
"Greenhouse gas emissions from batteries are extremely low.
This is a net benefit to the environment.
"As many as 500 incentive programs were available in 2017 to buy new electric vehicles and to be fair to those who cannot pay the full cost of the new car of $40,000, there are also 400 incentives for those who buy used electric cars.
Rogoza predicts that with the launch of more models, this year's power revolution will build momentum, and that the range of these models is enough to dispel fears of running out of power.
He said that a Chevrolet Bolt model will be available in Vancouver in about a month, and can travel more than 300 kilometers at a single charge.

Upton describes the main financial options consumers face.
In the long run, he can't say which technology is cheaper.
The cost of each purchase is changing, he says: Some consumers are happy with cheap gasoline --
Electric vehicles have a huge price advantage compared to electric technology, while some people like expensive natural gas.
The price is closer to the power model of electric vehicles;
The amount of gas consumed also varies depending on the speed at which the driver accelerates;
The cost of the charging system varies.
There is no doubt that the price difference between technologies is getting smaller, Upton said.
He noted a recent statement by a leading U. S. official. S.
Automakers say half of all cars sold will be electric in about 15 years.
He said the charging infrastructure for the Vancouver Metro is in its infancy, adding that the number of vehicles served is relatively small.
