There are over four thousand vehicles powered by electric motors in Manitoba. More and more Manitobans are becoming interested in electric-powered vehicles, such as cars, buses, scooters, boats, etc. A few savvy Manitobans have converted various internal combustion powered vehicles to electric power. Some have purchased electric vehicles (EVs) from manufacturers. Others are contemplating an EV purchase or conversion. Some don’t own a motorized vehicle, but, like every EV enthusiast, they’ve dedicated themselves to promoting greater public and private use of clean, energy-efficient, electric vehicles.
