EASY Car Sales was established in 2009 and is reportedly highly respected and very successful.  EASY Car Sales has the distinction of being the first to offer electric vehicles for sale or lease in the Bahamas.

There is no doubt that EVs are well suited for the Bahamas.  With short driving distances and the price of fuel being outrageously expensive, EVs are perfect there.

John Felder, President and CEO of Cayman Automotive Leasing and distributor of these electric vehicles stated:

 

“The Caribbean is the perfect place for electric vehicles, shorter traveling distances, lower speed limits, abundance of sunlight for solar panel charge stations and a community that wants to protect their natural beauty and environment for all future generations.”

The Bahamas has more than enough sun to allow for electric vehicle charging to be done with solar power. The protection of natural resources in the Bahamas is crucial as the ecology of islands is not something we should tamper with.

The President and Founder of Sun Country Highway, Kent Rathwell, commented:

“We are elated to have The Bahamas plug into our economically, socially and environmentally sustainable transportation system. Island nations are at risk due to climate change and, as global citizens, we are in control of the planet’s destiny and should not continue blaming governments and large corporations.”

Wheego LiFe specs:

“The Wheego LiFe is an all-electric, two-seat subcompact car with fit, finish and features designed for today’s environmentally-conscious commuters. The LiFe comes fully-equipped with driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, power windows and locks, and optional air conditioning. The 115V lithium battery pack can be charged from a standard 120V outlet, a 240V outlet or any of the J1772 standard charging stations being installed in public locations throughout the United States. The LiFe travels approximately 100 miles on a single charge. It is available in red, white, blue, black, silver, and green. Starting at $32,995, the LiFe qualifies for a $7500 Federal tax credit.”

nice smart knock off

no style

getting EVs on the road is more important than style. price does seem high though for such a small car

Doesn’t 115volts seem really low for a modern electric car? What kind of wattage/current does that motor draw?

They use the HPEV AC 50 drivetrain. The same one used in many conversions.

Headed to the Bahamas soon, can we rent one on the out islands?

Make it red and I will write an article about it.
