Timmy Ho goes Eco


Look what was installed at the Tim Hortons near the Lykki Headquarters. Charging stations for electric cars.
Good for Timmies and the City of Coquitlam for being quite progressive. I love this picture - can you see the old 60's car parked in the charging station? Imagine the buyer of that car back in the 60's being told one day the car would be evolved by the electric car. Will the next specialized parking spot be for a flying car??


I was wondering what kind of electric cars were available to buy, so for this blog post I stopped into a Tesla electric car dealership. It's actually one single car in a store inside the mall. The car was incredibly impressive with acceleration faster than a Porsche 911 and an immense amount of room for 7 passengers and luggage due to the fact there is no extras like a motor transmission or exhaust to take up space.
Although the cost of this model S was close to $100k, I'm sure costs will come down.

Personally I'd prefer free WiFi everywhere before charging stations.
