As people are getting ready to hit the slopes this winter, two new products will be open for selection, the revolutionary Envo Snowkart and Snowbike. The Snowkart has a powerful Li-Ion battery which provides over two hours of pleasure riding at around 20km/h speed with a single charge. The Snowbike, on the other hand, offers a 1000-watt motor at a speed of 18 km/h and has a range of 10 kilometres. Both do not require a truck or trailer as they are easily transported and can fit in the back of your SUV.
Transportation is a major source of air pollution that harms public health, in addition to being the most significant source of global warming emissions in North America. Reducing the amount of pollution from tailpipes will have real benefits for people living in densely-populated cities or along major highways.
Electric vehicles are also cheaper to maintain compared to traditional gasoline cars and trucks. While the price of oil is volatile, the cost of electricity is low and stable. In most cities, driving electric can save a household thousands of dollars every year. As the market grows, the price of electric vehicles have fallen dramatically. With 80 percent of electric vehicles sold in 2018, the base retail price is suggested to be under $50,000.
An electric future is not just the hope of electrical vehicle owners and engineers. Increasingly, both automakers and governments around the world are looking to an electric future as a way to cut oil use, reduce the risks of climate change, and build a cleaner, more sustainable future. Major automakers, including Volkswagen, General Motors, and Toyota have all explicitly stated their belief that the future is electric—but it’s in all our interest to make sure it happens fast.
The urgency of the climate crisis demands an electric future. The rest of the world can’t afford to get left behind as the shift to innovative new technologies is rapidly taking place globally. At Envo, we are building a strong electric market to keep Canada competitive in a carbon-conscious world. We prioritize research, development, and manufacturing in all types of electric vehicles.
The Envo Electric Snowkart and the Electric Snowbike are one large step towards achieving this collective goal. Both products will be available in the market next winter and will be available to buy online. Or better yet, you can make a stop to one of the authorized EBikeBC dealers for your selection of electric vehicles.
