Description

“Selling Electric Vehicles to Canadians”
When it comes to EV barriers, Cara Clairman has heard it all: They’re too small, too unreliable, and might (shudder) run out of juice before you get where you’re going. In fact, her team has had literally thousands of interactions with would-be Canadian electric vehicle purchasers. What are the obstacles to EV adoption, both real and imagined? How might companies, advocates, and policy makers best address them? And where are Canada's EV hotspots, and why?
