Electric vehicles are more expensive than conventional ones and have limited range, which decreases in cold weather. Who buys them? Rich people.Off with their heads!!!
In Ontario, the Wynne government is giving public subsidies of up to $14,000 for electric vehicles, plus $1,000 for installing a home charging station. Plus four years of free electricity for overnight charging.
It’s also promised to work with Ottawa to eliminate the 13% HST on electric vehicles by 2018, spend $80 million on workplace and apartment charging stations and $20 million for 250 charging stations across Ontario.
All in, these subsidies mean, according to an analysis by the Fraser Institute, that the public will pay about $250 million to lower emissions by 0.03% in 2020 compared to 2014.
