Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular in Bermuda, but many locals still have questions about their practicality.

To answer their queries, EVolution Motors, the electric car dealer, will be holding a family day on Saturday at their showroom in the Washington Mall in Hamilton.

At the event, they will introduce their current crop of electric cars: the new Wuling Binguo (D Class), the MG3 Hybrid (E Class) and the MG ZS EV (H Class).

Andre Labonte, CEO, said: “We encourage families to come out and be surprised by their size and suitability as a potential family car.

“Bermuda is a perfect place to have an electric car. It’s almost impossible to run out of charge, the cost of running one is around a third of the total running cost of a traditional car and they make a huge difference towards helping to keep Bermuda’s environment as beautiful as we want it to be.”

Staff from EVolution Motors will be on hand to answer questions about the cars and the process of switching from a traditional car.

Along with refreshments, those visiting the showroom on Saturday will be entered into a giveaway, including a grand prize of a Horwin EK3 electric scooter, valued at $4,700.

The Binguo (pronounced bingo) is a retro four-door car available in three colours, retailing from $29,985.

It features ABS, a rear parking sensor and camera, an LED control centre and a large storage capacity.

Installation of a charging station at home is included in the purchase of any EVolution Motors vehicle. The Binguo has a range of up to 335km.

EVolution Motors said Wuling may be an unfamiliar name to many Bermudians but the brand has been producing electric cars in conjunction with General Motors and MG for more than a decade.

In addition to traditional loans, buyers of electric vehicles may be able to take advantage of ‘green loans’ from local banks.

Earlier this year, Mr Labonte visited car companies MG and Wuling in China, and also the Beijing Auto Exposition.

While there, China Central Television interviewed him about potential ramifications from the current political climate and the impact on their business dealings with the West.
