Possible EV coming up for auction?

While browsing some auction sites looking at cars I noticed this one. It is from Toronto Hydro. I see a few things that are odd that make me think it may be electric. First it's from Toronto Hydro. I see a cord hanging out of the front on the passenger. (may just be a block heater, but for a gas car in Toronto?) Then in another picture I see a hole on the back fender that looks like you could plug it in there too. I also don't see any exhaust pipe, but it might just be the angles.

Now it does say that it is gas, but you never know? They might be filling out those forms without even looking at the car.

The VIN is there, can anyone do a carfax?

Thats great, I guess what probably rules it out as being an EV is the high mileage on it. I would imagine it would be hard to put 113KM's on an EV in ten years.

Still looks odd!
