BLDC Welcomes Electric Rental Cars to Southside with New Charging Station
Twizy electric rental cars can now be charged while visitors enjoy a day at Clearwater Beach in Southside, St. David’s. Bermuda Land Development Company Limited (BLDC) announced today that they have installed eight dedicated charging points at the popular beach.
The two-seater Renault Twizy minicars have been available to rent from Current Vehicles in Bermuda for just over a year. “Since their introduction, Twizys have proved to be incredibly popular with visitors,” said BLDC’s Chief Executive Officer, Francis Mussenden. “We wanted to support the people using these vehicles and felt that installing charging ports would bring more visitors to this beautiful and somewhat undiscovered part of the Island.”
“This is just one part of our commitment to improve the experience at Clearwater Beach for everyone. We have upgraded the parking lot at Turtle Bay and the restroom facilities have been renovated,” Mr. Mussenden went on to say. “We also have new vendors offering beach activities, merchandise, refreshing treats, deck chair and umbrella rentals, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and much more.”
Piers Carr, Chief Executive Officer of Current Vehicles, said “We set out to make Bermuda more accessible than ever by giving our customers the means to safely explore the Island at their own convenience. Clearwater Beach is a bit of a hidden gem but a place that we know will create lasting memories for all of those that visit. Having charging stations located there will help to encourage more visitors to the site and hopefully show them a part of the Island they would otherwise not see.”
There is no fee for topping up a Twizy at the Clearwater charging stations. The zero emission minicars have a range of about 55 miles per charge. Visit www.currentvehicles.com for more information.
