Electric Cars To Be Sold In The Bahamas

EASY Eco-Car, a division of EASY Car Sales located in Nassau (the Bahamas), will soon begin selling the Wheego LiFE electric vehicle, the first EV to be sold there. Cayman Automotive Leasing will be responsible for distribution of the vehicles. The Wheego LiFe is sourced from China, but the battery and drivetrain are both installed in California. It has a range of about 100 miles per charge, and can be driven on highways. The two-seater has rear cargo space and a top speed of 65 mph.

Sun Country Highway will implement a network of EV charger stations to support the Wheego LiFe rollout. The Bahamas and other Caribbean nations are especially good places for electric vehicles, because of the short travel distances that are typical for most drivers and the high gasoline costs. Also, the charging stations could be solar-powered because there is plenty of sunlight available there.

Adding electric cars is also a good way to preserve that island chain’s natural beauty because there will be less air pollution. About five million tourists visit the Bahamas each year, and most of them are from the United States. Gas-powered vehicles are a major contributor to air pollution in the Caribbean.
