Electric Vehicles

Information on electric pickups and cargo vans can be found on our Pickups and Vans page.

Information on used electric vehicles can be found on our Used Vehicles page. Note that a large number of used 2021 and 2022 models are widely available at prices sometimes exceeding that of the corresponding new 2023 model. This is due to the long delivery times for many 2023 models. There is a comprehensive listing at autotrader.ca.

For each of the new electric vehicles listed below, the regional dealers and their contact information can be found on our Dealers page.

Further information on factors affecting range as well as government rebates, dealer discounts, operating cost, home charging, the electric driving experience and environmental benefits can be found on our Detailed Information page.

Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) Comparison from a Richmond Perspective

  • By "Battery Electric Vehicle" we mean a vehicle with an electric motor as its only means of propulsion. We list only vehicles that have an EPA range of at least 150 km. While we applaud those who drive hybrid vehicles because they have taken the first step toward a fully electric vehicle, we believe that only fully electric vehicles can make a meaningful change in the transportation landscape.

  • For Richmond owners, an electric range of 80 km allows for more than two return trips to downtown Vancouver in one day plus an extra margin for safety. For longer trips, we recommend 365 km of range for two hours of highway driving and 525 km for three hours. There is a detailed discussion of range requirements to particular destinations here.

  • The only BEVs available with 7 seats are the Tesla Model X and Model Y, Mercedes EQB and EQS SUV, Rivian R1S and Vinfast VF9. The 7 seat versions reduce the trunk volume shown in the listing.

Vehicles included in the listing

  • We only list vehicle models that the manufacturer states will be availble in the Canadian market. That excludes many European and Asian models and a few that will only be available in the U.S.

  • For each model, we only list the lowest price version and any versions with a larger battery.

  • A number of new electric vehicle manufacturers have displayed prototypes of models with expected shipping dates in 2023 and then not produced them, in many cases because they do not have sufficient investment funding. We only list those vehicles when they are in production.

  • Established electric vehicle manufacturers frequently display new electric vehicles long before they enter production and announce shipping dates that are not kept, sometimes due to a shortage of semiconductors. We list them when the shipping dates are in 2023 and mark them as not available. We mark them as available when they begin shipping to Canadian advance order holders.

  • Due to high demand, many manufacturers take online orders in advance. If they stop taking orders, it often means that they do not anticipate being able to produce more vehicles than the number of orders already in hand. When our listing shows them as available, it may mean that they are shipping to order holders, but can no longer be ordered.

Explanatory Notes

  • Most models listed are expected to be available in Canada before the end of 2023. The ones listed as available have begun deliveries to those who pre-ordered. There is a shortage of electric vehicles and for most models, few or none are available in dealer inventories. Pre-ordering is recommended.

  • Maximum Charge Rate refers to the vehicle's Level 3 DC fast charging capability. How fast the vehicle can charge at a Level 3 charging station or Tesla Supercharger depends on both the station's maximum ability to deliver the charge and the vehicle's maximum ability to receive the charge. The chart shows the latter. The higher the number, the faster the charging time. This is a maximum. The charge rate will decrease as the battery gets closer to full and if the temperature of the battery is not optimum. Information on Level 1 and Level 2 home charging is available here.

  • Range is for a combination of city and highway driving as reported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA rating) or the estimated EPA rating announced by the manufacturer for vehicles not yet available. EPA ratings are averaged for a wide range of environmental conditions. Richmond drivers should achieve increased range due to our ideal environmental conditions for electric vehicles. For highway only driving at higher speeds, there is a detailed discussion of range requirements here.

  • Trunk volume is with all seats in normal position. It does not include any storage in the front of the vehicle or "frunk".

  • Manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) is for the base model including freight and destination charges for delivery in Richmond without upgrade options and accessories and before government rebates, dealer discounts and taxes.

  • The Federal Government rebate is $5,000 after tax. That rebate has not been deducted from the MSRP shown above. The MSRP does include freight and destination charges. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the base model must be under $55,000 before freight and destination charges. More expensive trim models must not exceed $65,000. In the case of SUVs, pickups and vans, the base model must be under $60,000 and more expensive trim models must not exceed $70,000. Details here.

  • With the exception of vehicles with a MSRP over $55,000 (not including delivery fees), all of the vehicles on the list with an electric range of 85 km or more qualify for the $3,000 BC Government rebate after tax. Those rebates have not been deducted from the MSRP shown above which does include delivery fees.

  • The vehicle dealer will deduct both federal and provincial rebates, if applicable, after taxes at time of purchase and claim it from the governments.

  • If you are scrapping a gas engine vehicle and purchasing a designated electric vehicle from an authorized dealer at the same time, take advantage of the incentives offered by BC SCRAP-IT. The incentive is $500 if a new or used electric vehicle is purchased. There is also a $400 incentive if a new or used plug-in hybrid vehicle is purchased. (Plug-in hybrid vehicles are not listed here.) The available incentives are allocated to each participating dealer and the regulations require that you first get the dealer to assign an incentive to your electric vehicle order and then apply to BC SCRAP-IT once the dealer has the vehicle available for delivery.
