The city of Hong Kong introduced on May 15th, 2013, the city’s first fully electric fleet of taxis. The BYD e6 Taxis, manufactured by Chinese auto manufacturer BYD, will service the Asian mega-city’s commuters during a trial project exploring the potential for expanding electric coverage to the rest of the city’s taxi fleet. This trial launch will also see the installation of 47 chargers in 9 locations at Hong Kong area car parks, with a plan to expand this network as the project progresses.
