Hyundai Canada-Turo Partnership Will Give Canadians Access to Long-Term Test Drives of EVs
Consumers who are considering an electric vehicle have few opportunities to actually test drive one. Yes, they can test drive a model at a dealership, or on occasion at car shows, but it's still a very short sample.
Too short, in fact, to really get a feel for the advantages and disadvantages of an EV, a format new to the great majority of Canadian motorists.
With this in mind, Hyundai Canada announced at an event in Montreal that it has entered into a partnership with Turo, the country's largest car sharing platform. The fruit of that partnership is a new Canadian program that will give motorists a chance to drive an electric vehicle over a longer time frame. Hyundai Mode de ViE is being offered initially in select Canadian cities in Ontario and Quebec, and will be expanded to other cities across the country over the course of the year, starting in British Columbia.
Under the program, those wanting to test drive a Hyundai electric vehicle can do so using the Turo platform directly to make a reservation, or the manufacturer's website. Specifically, certain dealerships will post vehicles on the platform, which can be reserved for different periods of time. It would be two weeks, or a month, or some other time period. Users who then decide to buy a Hyundai electric vehicle are eligible for a $500 discount.
