Summary:

Quebec's best car!

Faults:

Nothing at all.

Except it was a bit hard to start sometimes.

General Comments:

This car is a project of electric cars in the late sixties. Don't expect to see these today: I've been one of the very few owners of this car. The car was made in Quebec, by Bombardier, but the climate here is too cold for this kind of car, and the market is not ready for them yet. Too bad!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Does this review come from Quebec, Canada? As I do know the climate there is chilly. One more thing, can anyone give me anymore information on this car? It sounds really interesting and I'd like to know more. Thanks. Ben. Ontario, Canada.

He did 26000 km in it - so it sounds pretty successful to me.

Maybe he'll come back and give us some more details.

I live in Victoria British Columbia (Canada's greenbelt!) and have heard about these vehicles on CBC. Does anyone have any more info on them?

Yes the Quebec weather is some of the worst in Canada, hotter than heck in the summer and colder than... in the winter. But I can't imagine it would be difficult to fix the problem of poor starting; in any kind of weather.

I will continue to watch for info re this vehicle and report here if/when I do. Please be on the look-out and report as well?

Cheers, from Victoria BC.

How cold does it get in quebec? I live in manitoba, and it can get up to -55 degrees c here. Sounds like a cool car!

They also make locomotives; nothing like a little horizontal integration, eh?
