FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The B.C. Oil & Gas Commission has added a new addition to its northern vehicle fleet.

According to the OGC, they have added an electric vehicle to its Fort St. John fleet to support the CleanBC plan and initiate a pilot program of how an EV operates in a northern climate.

The vehicle being tested is a 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric which will be used year-round by staff to attend meetings and perform other duties in order to see how well it will perform in the northern climate.
