Plug’n Drive and the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) are pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Electric Vehicle Awards.

The Electric Vehicle Awards, now in their sixth year, recognize Canadian car dealerships and electrical utilities that are leaders in the sale and promotion of electric vehicles.

Dealerships that are being recognized have an impressive combination of sales, marketing efforts and public outreach to actively increase EV sales in their communities. Electrical utilities are rewarded based on the merits and impacts of utility led EV programs and initiatives.

The EV Awards program is available to dealerships and electrical utilities across Canada. The winners were selected by an independent panel of top Canadian EV industry experts from across the energy, auto, charging and media sectors. The 2020 EV Awards winners are:

  • Shift EV (Ontario): Leading Battery Electric Vehicle Dealership Award
  • VE Simon-André (Quebec): Mike Brigham Used Electric Vehicle Dealership Award
  • Alectra Utilities (Ontario): Tom Mitchell Electric Vehicle Utility Leadership Award
  • Bourgeois Chevrolet (Quebec): First Ever Hall of Fame Inductee

“This year’s winners are making EVs increasingly accessible,” said Cara Clairman, President and CEO of Plug’n Drive, “Collectively, their efforts and results deliver environmental and economic benefits that extend beyond their communities to all Canadians.”

Electric vehicles have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, while helping Canada reach its climate change action goals.

“The Canadian electricity that powers EVs is among the cleanest in the world at more than 80% GHG emissions free,” said Francis Bradley, President and CEO of the Canadian Electricity Association. “The electrification of transportation is a crucial component of building a cleaner and more prosperous future.

This year’s EV Awards winners were recognized during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, September 29.
