Felder: 200 electric cars by end of 2015

By the end of this year, Cayman will have a total of 50 vehicles that are 100 percent electric-powered driving around the islands.
Cayman Automotive President John Felder said Wednesday that he had orders for that many vehicles and is hopeful that as many as 200 fully electric-powered vehicles would be here by the end of 2015.
“I’m ramping up because people are asking for this,” Mr. Felder said at the opening of his new solar-powered electric car charging station at Governor’s Square, the first stand-alone structure in Cayman strictly for the use of vehicle charging.
“By the end of 2015, it is my goal to make Grand Cayman the [jurisdiction with] the largest percentage of electric car owners in the world, per capita. Right now, I think Finland holds that mark,” he said.
The ribbon-cutting at the charging station was done by Cayman Islands Governor Helen Kilpatrick.
“I think [solar power] is the future for the Caribbean and transport here,” Mrs. Kilpatrick said. “Well done.”
