Chinese fully electric taxis put into service in Brussels

BRUSSELS, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) — Belgian officials on Wednesday welcomed 34 fully electric Chinese-made taxis being put into service in Brussels.

“Using electricity in public transportation, including the taxi sector, is vital for European citizens’ quality of life,” Pascal Smet, Brussels’ minister for mobility and public works, said at the official launch of the “e6” taxis made by BYD (Build Your Dreams), a Shenzhen-based Chinese manufacturer of rechargeable batteries and automobiles.

Smet said the electric taxis generate less pollution and noise.

Addressing the ceremony, Chinese Ambassador to Belgium Liao Liqiang said China had paid great attention to the development of greener vehicles and the energy-saving industry at large.

“These 34 BYD e6 taxis symbolize the leadership of Chinese new vehicle technology, helping to electrify transportation in Brussels,” he added.

Liao noted that the Chinese government was encouraging more companies such as BYD to invest in Belgium.
