Its high...for what Quebec is.  And  with what the world had to deal with in 2020.  Quebec citizens are not exactly wealthy like say...parts of California...

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-quotidien/210422/dq210422e-eng.htm

  • however, Quebec accounts for nearly 50% of zero emissions car sales in Canada...  (same link as above)

 

But the MOST important thing though, regarding ICEVs and BEVs.  Quebecois are very indifferent about the future of ICEVs (in general) and Id say the majority of the people are in FAVOUR of BEVs.  What we might NOT want is a LAW FORCING us to switch to BE.  But we arent exactly opposed to switching to BEVs on our own anyway... 

We are skeptical as a society on how the logistics to get there will happen as we dont see any REAL changes as of yet. But again, we arent exactly crying for the internal combustion engine going away...even as soon as 2035...

From the 92 000 units sold link:  (the above paragragh that I didnt post suggests that Covid really didnt affect car sales. But that was probably early in the pandemic) 

Quote

 

For Poëti, the real problem is most folks can't afford an electric car. 

"People who have [an electric car], they're men who are on average 46 years old," he said. "Their salary ranges between $70,000 and $80,000."

Among the other factors that may have curbed consumers' enthusiasm in recent years: a relatively modest number of charging stations, Quebec's sprawling geography and electric cars' limited range, which decreases during episodes of extreme cold, said Poëti. 

"I can't bring Gaspésie closer to Quebec and I can't bring Abitibi closer to Montreal," he said.

 

 

Issues that North Americans in general have about BEVs.  Quebecois are not so different.  

BUT...Quebecois are not afraid to switch to BEVs.

Proved by the 6.8% figure which Im assuming is higher than MOST parts of North America. For the fact that Zero-emissions vehicles sold in Quebec account about 50% of the total in Canada.  

And as VW and Chevrolet, (and Ford and Honda and Hyundai...) will come out with REAL affordable EVs in the next 2-3 years, and charging times and range will improve and MORE charging stations will be available to bring Gaspésie closer to Québec and Abitibi closer to Montréal, that 6.8% figure will be substantially higher by 2028, 2029, 2030, 2031, 2032, 2033, 2034, 2035...

Canada as a whole was 3.5% market share in '20, the U.S. was 1.8%. Quite basically; that's in the same small basket from where I sit.

Quebec from '19>'20 gained 1.0% marketshare. I don't expect you'll see more than a 2.5% gain per year, and don't forget- as the pool accumulates, each percentage point takes a larger & larger volume to accomplish. At 3.5%, Canada needs to find the other 96.5% of buyers.

25% of Mazda’s New Cars Will Be Electric by 2030, But a Straight-Six Is Still in the Works

"As part of its commitment to be carbon-neutral by 2050, a quarter of all Mazda vehicles will be electric, and and every remaining car it makes will have some sort of electrified element by 2030. This means full EVs, plug-in hybrids, or regular hybrids.

It's going to be bringing out five mild-hybrid models, five plug-in hybrid models, and three additional electric models from 2022 to 2025. But that's just the start of it; it's also building an EV-specific version of Skyactiv that will be launched between 2025 and 2030 and will be a scalable platform for pretty much any EV."

True ^^^

But Quebec makes its own laws.  A Quebec ban on ICE where the sale of new ICEVs by 2035 is relegated to Quebec only.  It only affects the citizens of Quebec. 

And if going by your 2.5% increase in increments, by 2035, 39% of Quebec's population would own an EV?

For Quebec?  Yeah...39% seems doable.  Even by BEFORE 2035 as I stated above.  Quebecois are not hung up on that idea.  Are not really crying over the disappearance of ICEVs.  Are quite acceptant of BEVs. 

Like the link states:

The reasons why Quebecois are buying them up slowly is not because they are hesitant of the tech, or because they are dependent on fossil fuels for electricity and they are caught up in a "moral" argument of what pollutes less, fossil fuel electricity to charge the filthy battery but reasons:

1. price.   BEVs are still out of reach for regular families. But Hyundai Konas and Tesla Model 3s are quite common.   When really affordable BEVs are on the market, Quebecois WILL buy them.  The argument can go if and when BEVs become truly affordable.  We dont know when that will happen, but as far as Quebec goes...WHEN it does, Quebecois WILL buy them...

2. Charging stations...not enough of them.  Well that is kinda false in a way. 

a) In the big cities of Montreal and Quebec, charging stations ARE around. Enough of them for the size of OUR TOTAL population and our TOTAL car pool.  And only MORE of them are being erected each and passing day...

b) the dude mentions that Quebec has a sprawling geography and its hard for people from Gaspesie to travel to Quebec and Abitibi to Montreal with BEVs as there are virtually NO charging stations. And he is CORRECT. 

But...2 things.

Have you seen where Abitibi is?

Its out in the middle of phoquing nowhere. If Clark Griswold crashed his family truckster in the desert and walked a few miles, crossed paths with a couple of natives that called him an asshole, to find a garage station to fix his suspension  and install 4 bald tires that cost him all his pocket money, well...in Abitibi, he would have to travel MONTHS (exaggeration) to find ANY resemblance of civilization... 

There simply is not enough people living there to justify ANY charging stations...as of yet.  Id like to see what are new car sales in Abitibi to see what the phoque is he talking about crying about charging stations and the lack there of up North like that... 

Gaspesie is another thing... He may be right about that one. But Quebec has invested millions and continue to do so in putting up charging stations ALL over Quebec.  There will be enough charging stations in Gaspesie, in Abitibi, in Chibougamou eventually.  Quebec is committed.  The ENTIRE province is committed from the Provincial level all the way to the small town municipalities where the populations are thin thin thin...

The Mayor of Montreal and Quebec city are all on board. Their successors are too...  

The citizens want a change...

The all local businesses dont seem to mind. Hey...to install a charger, the government pays us a substantial amount to do so...AND we get tax credits for it too...   DOUBLE WHAMMY.  And lord knows Quebec businesses need tax breaks of any kind...

3. cold weather battery depletion is not really THAT big of a concern for Quebecois. I talk to many folk with EVs and they never seem to bring that up.  I do live in the suburbs and these EV owners DO own a house/condo and these owners DO have a charger hooked up at their home...       If I did my talking to folk that actually lived in the city, Id probably have a different answer.  But cold weather battery depletion is like range anxiety.  They are both connected because battery depletion LEADS to range anxiety. But we've talked about THAT ad nauseum. 

a) new tech batteries that are coming in the next few months/next year or two have that problem fixed at a minimum loss and the newer tech batteries that are 5-6 years away will have eliminated that.

b) charging stations are being erected at a fast pace in Quebec. Wont be a problem to find a charging station if you need one...

c) charging times with new tech batteries and new tech charging stations will be considerably lower than what it is now...  One wont have to charge 5 minutes here and there for 5 pit stops or charge for 1 hour at 1 pit stop... And THAT is in the very near future...

d) Most Quebecois dont travel looooong distances in the winter anyway. Especially to far away places like Abitibi for battery depletion to be a very big problem.   Many do ski, but Mont Avila, Saint Sauveur and Tremblant are not THAT far away and there are plenty of businesses around WITH chargers and although I havent been skiing for a looong time, Im not gonna be surprised to find out that there are charging stations at the ski entrances...

Ski for an hour or two....charge your EV and gain a few precious miles to get back home regardless of baterry depletion or not while you are skiing....    Couldnt charge your EV because none of the chargers were available?

HA! Quebecois after they ski, they eat out in restaurants...some restaurant chains like St-Hubert BBQ Chicken have chargers at their local.  Stop. Eat. Piss and charge your BEV...

Therefore, with THAT so called problem, Quebecois dont seem to whine about it constantly and use it as a weapon to vilify BEVs...

1. because battery tech has changed in the last 3 years.  The Model S Plaid as an example.  Its batteries are different from a decade ago giving the Plaid MORE range. Price is another story.

And will change even more in the following 3.  This is where GM's Ultium batteries come in and where GM will put them in truly affordable Chevys in the next 6 years... 

2. Charging tech has changed and GROWN since the last 3 years. ESPECIALLY in California where as compared to Quebec and even we dont whine about that...

The dude in MY link complains about not enough of them in Abiti-phoquing-bi Temiscamingue 

Location of Abitibi-Témiscamingue region and the Regional County... |  Download Scientific Diagram

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Abitibi-Témiscamingue (French pronunciation: [abitibi temiskamɛ̃ɡ]) is an administrative region located in western Québec, Canada, along the border with Ontario. It became part of the province in 1898. It has a land area of 57,736.50 square kilometres (22,292.19 sq mi) and its population was 146,717 people as of the 2016 Census.[

 

Out in the middle of phoquing nowhere...

And as stated, these Californians didnt have access to a charger. In 2018.  As chargers become MORE available in gas stations and are as abundant as gas stations to which California wants to achieve, its OLD NEWS.  NOT APPLICABLE.   

The situation of 2018 is VASTLY different in California in 2021 regarding this and will only be even MORE different in 2024.    From 2018 to 2024...is a BIG difference where THAT data is IRRELAVANT... 

If you dont think so...kudos for you.  

But take a pause and think about it before you shoot me down on a whim.  

 

In other words to answer your question...

Data has to be translated with NO PHOQUING BIAS taking into account HOW AND WHERE the technology is HEADING...

(and this technology and situation is changing pretty quickly...)

3.5% is nothing remotely like “quite common”. Imagine if 3.5% of people coming thru your restaurant door/calling actually ordered any food.  Now add in everyone else in the city never contacting your restaurant yet still eating food (existing vehicle owners).

Per the article I linked.

"Of those who switched, over 70% lacked access to Level 2 charging at home, and slightly fewer than that lacked Level 2 connections at their workplace.

 

Public charging stations may look like the electric version of the gas station, but nearly two-thirds of PEV drivers in the survey said they didn't use them. Exactly why they didn't use the public stalls was not specified.

EVs have come a long way in recent years in terms of range, safety, comfort, and tech features, but Hardman and Tal note that very little has changed in terms of how they are recharged."

There was no mention of lack of public chargers. Also, there isn't nearly the cost savings when charging in public.

I guess...you are reading that article with a BIASED view AGAINST EVs...

 

1. folk didnt have access to level 2 charging at home.

2. hassle to charge at a public charger

3. failure of article to state what was a hassle...

4. one has to assume 

a) charging times too long

b) hard to find a public charger that is 

i) available to use

ii) in good working order

iii) etc

5. I came to a conclusion that MORE public chargers that are at every corner LIKE a gasoline station is a VIABLE solution to which Norway is trying to do. California and Quebec as well... Couple that with charging times dropping in the NEXT 3 years and even faster charging times in the FOLLOWING 3 years... to accommodate the 

 FOLK THAT CANT ACCESS TO A LEVEL 2 CHARGING SYSTEM AT HOME...

but...BECASUE technology in battery tech is changing pretty quickly and charging times and range is also a problem that engineers WANT to address and ARE doing so..

THAT survey that was done in 2018 really has no teeth in 2021...  It got OUTDATED. 

Charging times in 2018 were longer BECAUSE not all public chargers had level 2 charging.  Not ALL BEVs had level 2 charging capabilities...

Going forward...is THAT STILL a problem for 2021?

For 2024?

A new problem HAS arose:

FUNCTIONAL charging stations...

Will THAT be a deterrent in 2021 for folk that dont have access to level 2 charging at home?

In 2024?

I know one thing, if finding working charging stations CONTINUE to be a problem in 2021 and 2022...then the United States of America is one useless dump of a country...

And yes I mean it that way... NO APOLOGIES.

If Greece could manage a working EV system...then there is NO phoquing excuse for the US...

No. 

Just the fact that not everybody has fallen in love with them once they've lived with them. That's it. 

We don't buy the same exact vehicle/configuration every time with ICE. Why is it surprising that somebody who bought an EV wasn't 100% satisfied with their EV? 

41 minutes ago, oldshurst442 said:

Yes, that's something people either have to adapt to or charge publicly. It's their choice to spend the money to install a home charger or not. 

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty certain California has not had an issue with public chargers for quite a long time.

So what exactly has changed in the three years?

Batteries are still lithium-ion, there aren't a whole lot of different EV options, and level 2 charging is still level 2 charging.

Just ADMIT it that you dont like EVs and STOP trying to insult MINE and everyone elses intelligence with phoquery! 

There is NOTHING wrong with you NOT wanting to adapt to EVs. JUST STOP being a COWARD and ADMIT it.

It took several posts...but I got you to admit it when your phoquery wouldnt go any further...

I had to insult your country to do so even...before I got the TRUTH out of you...

Why do you feel the need to lie about your view on EVs?

If its really about the information regarding EVs, then STOP reading the MISINFORMATION and INFORM yourself CORRECTLY and use your brain...

But if its because you are so dead set about EVs...then there is NOTHING wrong with that!

What was false? 20% of people in California switched back to ICE. 

Also, I've said MULTIPLE times that I am absolutely NOT against EVs. They have their place but they are not a god to be bowed down to, like some treat them. 

I'm pretty sure I've even said one of the cheapy older ones with <100 of range would be a great vehicle for around town when they hit the used market for like 3-5k.

It also did not say there were zero public chargers. Those people who bought an electric car absolutely knew where public chargers were located. 

Plenty of chargers in California in 2018.

Not for most folk it isn't. Incremental, evolutionary change has happened, not revolutionary. 

A 2019 Microsoft analysis found 162 million Americans didn't have broadband internet access. An entity called BroadBandNow in '20 pegged it closer to 42 million. No one is completely sure.

Point being; change takes time, and if you think charging scenarios are vastly different than 2020 (the date the report was released) to now, I'd question that hard.

As current data is showing just from 2020 to 2021, public charging grew 30% and is expected to explode this year. This is High Power Chargers not slow level 1 or 2.

High Power Charger for Electric Vehicle Market | 2020-2027 | Industry Report | Covid Insights (mordorintelligence.com)

Here, yes they use China but the data shows from 2018 to 2020 onboard charging to speed up from hours to minutes grew big time with much more models available for sale.

Global Electric Vehicle On Board Charger Market 2021-2026 | June 2021 Updated (mobilityforesights.com)

Just from 2018 to 2019, the data shows public chargers available grew 90%.

The point being is the study from 2012 to 2018 is OLD DATA, OUT OF DATE DATA due to how fast things are changing.

EV Charging Station Statistics in US, UK, & Europe [2021] (muchneeded.com)

Posting a story such as Business Insider as a New study when it is based on 3 year old and older data rather than current data which I consider to be the last 2 to 3 years is OLD DATA. Leases usually run 2 or 3 years. The story that @ccap41 posted should have been based on current trade-in of EVs to see how many actually did go back to ICE. That would be a current valid study rather than based on a study released at the start of 2019 based on data from 2012 to 2018.

IMHO.

I want to state, I am not attacking anyone here, just a bit of frustration at the piss poor journalism showing clear lack of research by the posted story writer.

I ACKNOWLDEGE that ICE will be around for a long time and even EVAdoption study shows that by 2030, 20 million additional ICE auto's will be on the road while BEVs continue to grow.

Yes, 3 years is considered current but the story is using data from 2012 to 2018, that is longer than 3 years and very outdated in an area that is changing monthly. While things can be inaccurate in all study data with errors, there are newer studies done that Business Insider writer should have looked at than a study from the early days of EVs.

Honda S2000 is right up there as a rally car that people love much like the Mazda Miata. Recent prices for the used S2000 market have the prices on the rise for the High Revving 4 cylinder 2 door sports car.

Rain Prisk, an designer decided it was time to envision what a Modern Honda S2000 would look like on the gm Ultium platform.

What are your thoughts on this design for an AWD BEV sports car?

Would the auto market embrace RWD/AWD sports cars?
