Better Place Toronto

Electric vehicle demo centre opens at the Brick Works

Move over Auto Show? Well, not exactly. Because this vehicle demonstration, launched at the Evergreen Brick Works on Thursday, is less about sweet rides and all about what's powering those rides.

Better Place, a much-hyped provider of electric vehicle infrastucture, has opened an interactive electric vehicle education centre at Evergreen Brick Works now open to the public. The exhibit features a mock-up vehicle charging station, a replica of the eight now up in running in Ontario, each of which can support two electric vehicles at a time. The demonstration also includes information about fully battery-powered cars, charge spots and battery switch stations, and electric vehicle car software designed to optimize battery use.
