Jamaican-Made Car

A Jamaican-Made Car?! The Island Cruiser is One Irie Ride

A Jamaican-Made Car?! Could that really be a thing? If so, would you rent one on your next visit to Jamaica? I know a lot of people that probably wouldn’t.

I mean, most people are fairly particular about their choice of rental car, especially when traveling in the Caribbean. Patrick, for instance, insists on a Jeep every chance he gets.

Me? I tend to be more flexible, preferring instead to roll with whatever beat-up, somewhat tinted sub-compact I can find. (Especially when it comes with perks like this).

I think I can speak for both of us, though, when I say that our goals are the same: fit in with the local scene, while still being able to get around to virtually every corner of whatever island we happen to enjoying.

Now honestly, what car could better enable you to fit in to the local scene than one made locally? In Jamaica, somewhat surprisingly, there exists just such a car!

Yes, the Island Cruiser is a 100% Jamaican-made car! As far as I know, it’s also the only car actually manufactured in the Caribbean. Check it out…
