From Sep 13, 2013 – Electric vehicles are in a bit of a tricky situation. They’re rapidly improving their range and technology but sales, especially in Canada, are slow. Electric vehicles make up 0.1 per cent of all new car sales. Some of the issues holding them back are range anxiety and a lack of existing electric vehicle infrastructure. Enter Kent Rathwell and Sun Country Highway. Rathwell is an ambitious entrepreneur who’s planning to have 1000 electric vehicle chargers installed across Canada by the end of the year. Learn how he did, his very interesting story and meet a rather unexpected business parter.
