[Petro Canada] Free EV Charging with an eligible RBC Credit Card

I stumbled across this link. Looks like there is free EV charging until Apr 2022 if you charge your vehicle on one of their fast EV chargers. You have to use an eligible RBC card. Go into your rewards and load the offer if its there. I saw it on mine and added it. These are DC fast chargers so its at 480V I believe (level 3). Great if you plan to take a trip coast to coast. You would get a statement credit equal to the EV cost. $0.33 per min after the free period

Our Leaf was not that much more than an equivalent ICE car, and paid for itself in about 18 months when we factored in the gas we saved not driving our F150.

Leaf is a nice car. Keep in mind more EVs to hit the market next year so prices are expected to drop. Also the fuel savings is a big savings on top so it does pay itself off

Maybe not much more but for anyone financing it’s still $850-1k+ a month, they need to bring down the costs of EVs or offer better rebates if the government is going to continue with its plans

Yeah I just saw it now. Didn’t realize it was posted before. I never bothered to look out for it since I didn’t own an EV a few months back

Really gotta get going on this. Road tripping with my 24kWh Leaf was such a PITA so I never bothered but I just got a Kona electric yesterday and now I can properly take advantage of this.

Petro charging stations are a shit show. Cannot be relied upon. Numerous locations on the 400 are not working at times where I needed a charge. Now I avoid them until their get act together.

You mean they are just not operational or take a lot of time to charge properly? This is good info to know

I am in Ont, anything trip over 200km one way will require me to plan for DCFC. And it is still pretty rare outside of major cities.

For how long? We’re in the market and even with O down we’re not seeing anything over $700/72 months

Minus the higher end models. Was even looking at the Mach E which was near $800 and change but the no heat pump is a no for us.

I typically look at a 5 year loan. Anything beyond that you need additional warranty typically

I priced out a RAV4 prime yesterday and after taxes, and a few add-ons it came to 60k before dealer fees

I also looked at the ID4 which looks incredibly like the CRV, that was coming out to 55k+

My vote is for used '18+ LEAF SV or SL, Bolt EV or Volt (MAYBE an Ioniq?). If you're buying new, just get a base Model 3 SR+ with no options.

I have Kona 2019 and love it, currently one of the best in term of range and value. If you're buying new look out for for the IONIQ 5 coming this fall.

Just did a long trip from South Toronto Area > Montreal > Ottawa > Montreal > Ottawa and back with a few other places, over 2000km. Only charged at Petro (check reviews) and only cost $73 charging but got it all back with this deal.
