The EcoRun is an annual AJAC event that shows off a variety of eco-friendly vehicles, which include pure electrics, plug-in and conventional hybrids, hydrogen fuel cells, diesel-fuelled powertrains and highly-efficient gasoline options.
The purpose of the EcoRun is to help inform consumers of these alternative options, as well as providing accurate road testing fuel economy numbers. There's no limit to the size of vehicle showcased, as they range from subcompacts to pickup trucks.
These new vehicles are driven on real-world road conditions in order to fully test for fuel efficiency and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.
For efficiency and economy, these vehicles earn full marks.
Besides being better for the environment, electric powertrains can open up new sensations for off-roaders.
Kees Jansen, director of EV service delivery at BC Hydro, explains how the utility is encouraging the purchase of electric vehicles through charging incentives. He also explains how the province and utility are meeting demand and making it easier to charge in condos and while travelling.
