“Shocked” by gas prices? Electric cars soon available for rent in Cayman

Drivers will soon have the option to eschew gasoline for electric vehicle technology. The Wheego, a fully electric vehicle has made its way to the Cayman Islands. Budget Rent-a-car told Cayman 27 the Wheego can get up to 100 miles on a full charge.

Drivers will notice it handles much like a conventional automobile, except the Wheego is noticeably quieter.

“This is our first electric car. We think it’s going to appeal to the customer who cares about the environment, who wants to see the technology move from different fuel sources. It’s going to keep gas prices lower and also just give people different options,” said Gary Todd of Budget rent-a-car.

The Wheego will be available for rent starting in March. It will cost around $70 to $80 to take it out for a day.
