Electric vehicles (ev) in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia Power is a strong supporter of the EV movement. We’ve installed Nova Scotia’s first EV fast-charging network, connecting the province end-to-end. Through helping to facilitate the establishment of the Nova Scotia Chapter of Electric Mobility Canada, hosting an annual EV test-drive event, and supporting incorporating EVs into commercial fleets, we’re helping our province adopt the way of the future. 


  • More than 170 EVs are registered in Nova Scotia today.
  • There are currently over 100 public charging stations across Nova Scotia– fourteen of which are EV fast chargers. See a map of all EV chargers in Nova Scotia at www.plugshare.com.
  • Almost every major car manufacturer has plans to release an electric vehicle in the next few years. Plug-in brands are available in Nova Scotia today include: Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Tesla, Volkswagen, Volvo.
  • Nova Scotia Power has partnered with Natural Resources Canada and the Government of Nova Scotia to install a network of Level 3 DC fast-charging stations and level 2 charging stations across the province. This will make Nova Scotia one of the few provinces to have a fully interconnected province of DC fast-charging stations.
