Vancouver Brings Electric Cars to the Streets

City council yesterday unanimously approved a bylaw allowing low-speed electric neighbourhood vehicles on all roads in Vancouver with posted 50km/h speed limits - making Vancouver the first major city in Canada to do so.

These cars are electronically limited to a maximum speed of 40km/h, and:

  • must travel in the right-hand lane, except to pass
    have to display a 'slow-moving vehicle' sticker
    cannot travel on any of the bridges, as the maximum speed over them is 60km/h
