Chile launches electric taxi programme

The Chilean government has launched a new programme to promote electric mobility in taxi services. The ‘My Electric Taxi Program’ provides co-financing of up to $11,000 to owners of current gasoline-powered taxis to renew their vehicles for purely electric BYD taxis. BYD says that the purchase of the 50 BYD e5 taxis will make it the largest electric taxi fleet in Chile.
