Electric cars are becoming more popular than ever before. Many consumers are realizing the benefits these cars offer and therefore we are starting to see more charging stations around Victoria. You may have noticed these stations in parkades, parking spaces, and the new Parkview townhomes at the gorge. We have nine new listings at Parkview and they all have unique modern attributes, but one thing they have in common is they all consist of electric car chargers. Designed by the award winning Zebra Design the contemporary units are the first in Canada to offer an electric car charge unit in every garage.
According to Statista by 2017 84.8 million electric cars are going to be out on the road. This number has escalated about 4 million since 2015. Even if you’re not planning to purchase an electric car when you purchase in the new townhouse development on Tillicum, we know car chargers will be in high demand in the coming years. In 2020, the statistics show that 88.4 million electric cars will be on the road by 2020, therefore there is an increased chance that the next buyer of your townhouse may own an electric car and need a charger at home!
According to BC Hydro, there are many benefits to owning an electric car. Not only are they a more sustainable and eco-friendly vehicle, they also use little to no gasoline. When electricity is your main source of power, you save 75% on fuel costs. An average Canadian will spend about $1500 per year on gas, now that might not sound like a lot but it is an unnecessary cost if you invest in an electric car. Think about what you could do with an extra $1,200 in your pocket.
One of the best features about the electric car charger in Parkview Townhomes is that it is installed onto the wall so it doesn’t take up any room in your garage. It also isn’t in the way when using your garage for storage or parking. If you are planning on using the charger for your current or future electric car, there are options to increase the power source for a faster charge through BC Hyrdo and your electrician. Many consumers are looking for anyway to contribute to a more eco-friendly environment and therefore electric cars are an easy pick. Whether you are wanting a home with a charging station or not, the EV stations are a great asset to have in your home based on the current and growing trends of electric vehicles.
