The car cost Roy nearly $97,000, but he thinks that it will end up more than paying for itself in the long run.
Roy, 41, believes that not having to pay for gas will allow him to make his money back quickly, and have a positive impact on the environment at the same time. According to his calculations, he's paying about three cents per kilometre to charge his car. Roy says he makes about $2 per kilometre from his fares.
The biggest issue so far for Roy is finding charging stations while he's out on the road.
He said he has to be organized, and makes sure that he charges his car for four hours every evening.
"Right now I can do 250-350km without a charge," he said.
Roy told QMI Agency he hopes that more charging stations will be available soon and that technology will soon enable for a full charge to take place in 30-40 minutes.
