Taiwanese taxi group orders 1,500 e6 EVs from BYD

Taipei, Oct. 9 (CNA) Electric cars developed by China-based BYD Auto will make their debut in Taiwan early next year, the vehicle’s local distributor announced Wednesday.

BYD Taiwan, a joint venture of BYD Hong Kong and Taiwan Solar Energy Co., said it has received orders from a local taxi association for more than 1,500 e6 cars, with delivery scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2014.

The company said it has commissioned a local automaker to assemble the first BYD e6 vehicles to be sold in Taiwan to speed up regulatory inspections and approvals.

The BYD e6 is an all-electric crossover car that the carmaker says has a nominal range of 300 kilometers (186 miles) on a single charge (in an eTaxi duty-cycle), though the range may fall short of that under actual driving conditions.

BYD Taiwan Chairman Chen Wei-ren said the five-seat e6, which has primarily targeted fleet customers to date, is being used as a taxi in Shenzhen, Hong Kong and the Colombian capital of Bogota and will soon be launched in Singapore, London and the United States.
