About EVolution Motors Bermuda
The rationale for creating Evolution Motors was to assist in the transition of Bermuda to a more sustainable, renewable energy future by offering our residents electric vehicle transport choices at an affordable price. By migrating transport to electric we can improve our overall environment and drive down costs at the same time. We believe strongly that Bermuda is the perfect location for vehicle electrification because of our small size with no real range barriers. With the battery capacities now available and the price of lithium batteries continuing to drop we believe we can finally balance cost and the environmental concerns to provide Bermudians with a truly revolutionary product.
Along with our service partners GB Auto , we can offer new technology products we can stand behind and be proud of at an affordable price.
We have initially partnered up with two of the most innovative electric car manufacturers in the world to bring them to Bermuda.

Additionally, we have been fortunate to have had the invaluable input of a friend and former resident of Bermuda, Mr. Michael Butler. Michael is the former General Manager of Bermuda Motors. His insights into the Bermuda car industry have informed some of the teams’ outlook.
In September 2019 Andre & Michael visited China and spent 3 days at the Shanghai Electric vehicle auto show, meeting with industry representatives. They then travelled to Jinan to do a factory tour of the Zuojun plant and along with their export partners at Yangzhou Yijie, they met with the heads of the manufacturer’s executive and technical teams.
Locally, Evolution has discussed collaborations with associates at BEST and Greenrock who have informed our formulation of a plan going forward to move the needle toward guiding Bermuda toward a cleaner more sustainable future.
