Government’s electric-cab plan fails to spark more suppliers’ interest

A government initiative to encourage more electric taxis onto the roads has failed to spark electric car suppliers’ interest.

The scheme, launched by the Environmental Protection Department, will see chargers compatible with up to three suppliers installed in government car parks for electric taxis’ use.

At present, only four models of electric private cars are available in Hong Kong – the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Nissan Leaf, Renault Fluence ZE and BYD e6. The BYD cars are already being used as taxis, with 45 on the roads.
