Renting Electric Cars in Cuba: Where to Find Them and Are They Worth It Amid Power Outages?

In spite of the current power outages, there is an option to rent electric cars in Cuba. Transtur, the leading company in Cuba’s tourism sector, announced the incorporation of electric vehicles into its rental fleet a little over two years ago. The cars can be rented with freely convertible currency (MLC).

Transtur, founded in 1980, offers car, motorcycle, and bus rental services, as well as tourist tours. The company stated that it is committed to sustainability and added their first 100% electric vehicles for car rentals for tourism, with plans to further expand their offer. Additionally, Transtur clarified that the cars can be recharged at their facilities and that clients will be provided with a charging station to install wherever they want, convenient for long rental periods.

However, amid the increase in the cost of electricity in Cuba, doubts arise regarding the profitability of renting an electric or combustion car. Some users question whether it is better to rent a fuel-based car due to the increase in electricity costs, while others suggest that it is better not to rent a car at all due to the shortage of gasoline.

Transtur purchased the Chery Arrizo 5e, an electric car with distinctive features such as a sealed front grille, metal wheels, a conveniently located charging port, and a new rear diffuser. The model’s manufacturer, a Chinese company, claims that it can reach a maximum speed of 152 km/h, which is reduced to 100 km/h in ECO mode. The recharge time for the battery is 20 hours, and the vehicle is priced at approximately 36 thousand euros in the international market.
