    This of course is more interest for locals and shows the number of registered EVs on our island.
    Saltspring Island of course once again leads the way by number of BEVs registered per population density.

    Being in Nanaimo the #s seem pretty low considering how many I encounter on the road , but I think most of the EVs I see here just come to shop/charge then head home or are travelling up or down Island .

    Interesting... Kinda makes sense about Saltspring Island...:)

    Wonder if there are similar stats about the Lower Mainland. I know there are tons of M3s downtown, but that's also the greatest pop density. Where I live (Langley) F350s and Ram1500s still dominate,... except at the EV chargers when you want to charge.

    We mid- and north-Islanders are the laggards. But I now see Teslas almost every day.

    More DCFC chargers would be welcome in this "Hub" area as people get off the ferry and want to top up before travelling north. There is a good reason why Tesla decided to install a Supercharger here.

    True, Campbell River tied for last with Port Alberni , but I suppose one sale in Port Hardy would bump it up the list (note stats as of March 31,2019).

    My postal code is excluded. I wonder why they exclude rural codes from this? I'm pretty sure there are dozens missing from the count in the Cowichan Valley as I have seen at least three Konas regularly in Cowichan Bay, along with several Leafs and Teslas.

    Probably part of a large group around the Island as not everybody lives in those jurisdictions, but still informative.
