EV dealer works for seven years to bring electric cars to Cayman Islands

It turns out it is easier place to make offshore investments in the Cayman Islands than it is to buy or sell electric vehicles there. Getting electric vehicles to the Cayman Islands has been a real challenge for John Felder, president of Cayman Automotive, a dealership that has made it a mission to sell EVs like the Wheego LiFe, Think City, and Amp plug-in conversions.

Felder was thrilled to see the first Caribbean International Electric Show launch on August 30 at the Cayman Motor Museum in West Bay on Grand Cayman. Just in time, too, since regulators were just then approving EVs to be registered in the Cayman Islands.

Felder had been pushing for seven years (!) for Cayman to go electric. In June of this year, Felder attempted to register an EV at the Department of Vehicles and Licensing, but was unable to do so because the department had safety concerns. According to Deputy Premier Julia O’Connor-Connolly, “the registration and licensing of vehicles was an intricate process and required extensive research on many issues.”
