Saskatoon CarShare Cooperative
World’s First Solar Powered Electric Vehicle Car Share right here is Saskatoon!
Sun Country Highway was proud to be part of the latest leap for renewable transportation in Saskatoon, SK. Where a handful of businesses and organizations have partnered with the Saskatoon Car Share Co-operative to launch Canada’s first 100% solar powered ride share vehicle.
A Sun Country Level II EV Series charging station is powering the new ride share vehicle using electricity generated by Saskatoon Light and Power, gathered as solar energy.
Sun Country contributed to the program by developing the IP, providing the charging hardware, and integrating the car share technology including hardware and software.
"The Saskatoon CarShare Co-operative offers the freedom of vehicle access without the expense and hassle of car maintenance. Our fleet of vehicles includes both gas and electric options. It is also the first public CarShare in Canada with EVs that 100% solar powered!"
