Sunshine Coast Electric Vehicle Association
Information | Education | Events
Our Mission Statement
The purpose of the Sunshine Coast Electric Vehicle Association is to promote the use of electric vehicles of all types on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. We will hold regular meetings and events to expand the knowledge of our members and the general public that will encourage greater adoption of electric vehicles in all sectors of society.
Coast FIRST in adoption, leading the Province
According to numbers obtained from ICBC, as of June 2021, the sunshine coast is leading the province in EV adoption. With all our towns in the top 25, (out of 300 municipalities that have licensed EV’s) we are the fastest growing region in the province per capita with over 732 EV’s. And that is just cars. Electric bicycle’s and scooters are extremely popular on the coast as well and with a perfect riding environment we are sure to be leading there too.
