EVs gaining ground worldwide

Here is a roundup of electric-vehicle news that recently crossed my desk:

? The City of Vancouver has announced it is purchasing 13 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars for their municipal fleet for 2012. It will access the cars for suitability and have indicated they may purchase a further 17 MiEVs in 2013.

The city also plans to install a number of charging stations at city sites for the cars.

Vancouver’s purchase is the largest fleet purchase of MiEVs in Canada. The District of Saanich, by comparison, purchased one MiEV earlier this year.

? Nissan celebrated National Plug-In Day (Sept. 23) with an ad recognizing the more than 37,000 Leaf owners around the world. Nissan calculates the Leaf owners have driven more than 160-million gas-free kilometres (100 million miles) since the vehicle’s launch in 2010.
