DISCOUNT, A FORERUNNER IN THE BUSINESS OF RENTING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY VEHICLES IN QUEBEC
Discount Car and Truck Rentals is the forerunner in the business of renting electric and hybrid vehicles in Quebec. Since 2004, Discount Car and Truck Rental has made it a priority to offer electric and hybrid cars to its customers.
Rechargeable electric vehicles have a beneficial effect on the environment, while meeting the expectations of customers in urban areas. Knowing that electric cars can be recharged via a network of charging stations in various shops throughout Quebec, and that they can also be plugged in at home, this type of vehicle is experiencing rapid growth, mainly in cities with dense levels of urbanization.
A GROWING SUPPLY OF CHARGING STATIONS IN QUEBEC
To further assuage your fear of running out of power, the province of Quebec has an abundant network of electrical terminals and recharging stations, with a high concentration of these terminals in the Montreal area. We invite you to consult the Electric Circuit web site to find the locations of electrical charging stations in the province of Quebec. Discount even offers a few public charging stations at several of our locations.
A COST CALCULATOR FOR ELECTRIC CARS IN QUEBEC
CAA has set up a page that allows you to calculate, according to your province, your annual kilometer usage and based on estimates of the average price of gasoline and electricity, the energy cost per kilometre and per year of your electric vehicle and to compare the result with gasoline-powered car models (two-seater, subcompact, compact, mid-size, van, prestige car).
The online calculator also tells you the environmental cost: the proportion of greenhouse gas emissions emitted in order to produce the electricity required.
