Embedded to your right you can see a current map of all the available charging stations across Canada. Use the tool in the right hand corner to map your route and it will display all charging stations available en route. For example if you were travelling from Victoria, BC to Campbell River, BC you would be travelling  approximately 265 km's with an available 140 (Level 2- Fast Charge) stations within 5 km's of the route. Travelling this route with a 62kWh Nissan Leaf you would only need to stop at 1 of 140 stations to comfortably complete your roundtrip.

Use this tool to download your stops to a printable file or use one of many interactive maps available on the app store. These are a few of our favorites - PlugShare, ChargeHub or BC Hydro EV. Common places to find charging stations would be grocery stores, shopping malls, and even gas stations.

On Vancouver Island our day to day driving is often well within the range of a fully charged battery. A great option for our daily drivers is installing a home charger that will allow them to plug in overnight and start the morning with a full charge. At Campus Nissan we recommend a Level 2 Flo Charger as it is universally compatible, space conscious, and affordable. This Flo charger will work with your Nissan Leaf and be compatible with all EV's and PHEVs on the road.

Save Money by Going Electric

BC Hydro estimates that if you drive 10,000 km in a year (27 km in a day) your monthly cost of electricity will be approximately $20 per month. Comparable to similar gas powered compact, which would be upwards of $79 per month. Over time you will see substantial savings by switching to an electric powered vehicle.
