MERCEDES- BENZ SPRINTER DEMONST- RATES 4X4 CAPABILITY IN BC

The logging industry of British Columbia uses a lot of trucks to get its business done. All manner of pickups move men, women and their equipment in and out of primitive, remote job locations.

MERCEDES- BENZ GLA A HEAD TURNER EVEN AMONG FALL FOLIAGE FINERY

When a state is so confident of its natural endowments that it emblazons the slogan ‘Vermont, Naturally” on it license plates, you know that nature’s distractions will abound. That confidence is well placed particularly in autumn when the State literally explodes with colour as sugar maple, elm, birch and other deciduous trees leafs change colour and drop to surround the trees around them. This spectacular natural display has spawned “leaf peeping” tours which attract millions of tourists who spend billions of dollars to witness the spectacle.

NISSAN INTRODUCES LEVEL THREE CHARGER FOR LEAF

The electric vehicle market in many regions across North America can be a case of the chicken before the egg. The vehicles are in place, but the infrastructure that supports their electrification (apart from areas of California and other regions) simply does not compare with the ease of access to power enjoyed by its gas-powered cousins. Tesla Model S not withstanding, most electric vehicles are intended to be primarily city driven cars that can be charged at home or (in some cases) at the place of work while commuting between the two. The single major problem for electric vehicles to achieve mass appeal is simply that the range able to be travelled by batteries must be increased, the infrastructure must be improved, and the time required for a charge must be reduced.
