Electric cars coming to Ontario?

While many people rent out Toronto storage units to house their vehicles, limited space often prevents large cars from being stored. But if the electric car movement comes to Ontario as it's expected to, small cars will be the "in" thing.

Better Place, an electric-vehicle service provider, opened up an electric car demonstration and education center recently with the funding help of the Ontario government.

"The general public will be able to access and see, touch and feel what it would be like to have an electric vehicle," said Sandra Pupatello, the province's economic development and trade minister.

The opening of the education center will bring two additional electric-vehicle charging sites to the Greater Toronto area.

If U.S. sales are any indication of how quickly fuel-efficient vehicles will sell in the GTA and Canada at-large, the transition to electric cars may be a slow process. According to February sales data released by Chevrolet, just 281 Chevy Volts were sold in February. Sales of Nissan's Leaf fared even worse, as the company moved just 67.
