Bside at Minto Westside and Nissan Canada partner to offer free electric cars for purchasers, setting a new sustainability benchmark in Toronto

Promotions involving EVs never cease to amaze.

A partnership between Bside at Minto Westside and Nissan Canada resulted in a new special offer combining a condo and an electric car:


Buy a parking space equipped with an electric vehicle (EV) charging station along with your condo in Toronto to get a FREE Nissan LEAF


We are not in position to advise whether it's strong offer or not, but it does sounds enticing.

"In an unprecedented move towards sustainability in the Toronto condo market, Minto is launching an electrifying offer to purchasers of Bside, the second phase of Minto Westside at Bathurst and Front: buy a parking space equipped with an electric vehicle (EV) charging station along with your condo, and Minto will throw in Canada’s top-selling, fully-electric car, the Nissan LEAF, for free."

"Bside at Minto Westside is strategically situated close to a network of streetcars, making city travelling accessible to future residents. The introduction of level 2 EV chargers and the Nissan LEAF incentive program not only makes owning an electric car viable for purchasers looking to extend their transit options, it raises awareness around the current lack of infrastructure in Canada’s condo market."

Wells Baker, Director of Conservation and Sustainable Design at Minto said:

“Our goal is to design for the future. Installing EV chargers at Bside gives residents who want a vehicle in the city the ability to make an affirmative environmental decision. That alone is a huge step forward, but we wanted to take that next step and actually incentivize a decision towards the more sustainable option.”

“The majority of high-rise buildings are faced with the challenge of overcoming a lack of infrastructure and space required for transformers needed to install electrical vehicle chargers. Bside is aiming to set a new benchmark in Toronto. It’s being developed with a dedicated transformer for EV chargers as well as space to add additional chargers as demand grows.”

Steven Rhind, director of marketing at Nissan Canada Inc. said:

“Accessible charging is an important consideration when people are looking at buying an electric vehicle and is especially challenging for those living in a condominium or apartment. Minto Bside’s commitment to integrating EV charging infrastructure is an important step in expanding the adoption of electric vehicles. The added incentive of offering an all-electric Nissan LEAF to buyers is exceptional.”
