The provincial government has purchased two Chevy Bolts to add to its fleet of vehicles for the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure.
The Chevy Bolt is an electric vehicle that does not use gasoline and does not emit exhaust or greenhouse gases.
Additionally, there are fewer maintenance costs, no fuel costs, and costs associated with engines, such as oil changes, are eliminated.
In the last provincial budget, the government announced an Electric Vehicle Adoption Accelerator Program that will provide a $2,500 rebate to residents who purchase an electric vehicle.
