First 10 Electric BYD Private Hire Cars Launched in London

  As previously announced, private-hire chauffeur operator Thriev has launched a fleet of zero-emissions, fully-electric BYD e6 cars in London.

  The first 10 out of 20 have already gone into service and are charging at the brand new British Gas charging network.

  ”Thriev offers low-cost, zero-emission, chauffeured vehicles to corporate and private users in London. The BYD e6 is ideally suited for private hire operations, providing a range of up to 300 km(186 miles) and the 20 private hire cars will be able to be recharged both at the depot and on the road thanks to British Gas.”

  According to the press release, at Thriev’s Edgware Road facility the first rapid chargers made by BYD were installed, which enable the BYD e6 to recharge to 80% in just 30 minutes. Those chargers must be high power, because the e6 has over a 60 kWh battery pack.

  Thriev offers a booking app for smartphones, so hiring an electric taxi should be now be much easier.

  ”The app, available for Apple and Android devices, allows customers to book a car in just three clicks. GPS allows the vehicle to be tracked in real-time on a map and the app also retains a history of previous reservations in the last 30 days for expense management and allows users to quickly rebook a repeat trip.”

  Arvind Vij, CEO and a co-founder of Thriev, stated:

  ”We are delighted to see the new BYD e6 private hire vehicles, which feature our unique branding, go into service in London. Thriev offers its customers a true revolution in transport, using modern technology to offer private hire services. Ultimately, our aim is to provide a zero emission and cost effective alternative to private car ownership in congested large cities like London.”

  Isbrand Ho, Managing Director of BYD Europe, commented:

  ”It is great to see our e6 on the roads of London in private hire service only a matter of weeks after we became the first manufacturer to have fully-electric buses in operation in the capital, too. We are delighted to be working with Thriev, which shares our vision to provide safe, reliable and efficient green transport in cities.”

  Andreas Atkins, Head of Electric Vehicle Services at British Gas, remarked:

  ”Innovations like Thriev make it possible for us to travel around with the best of both worlds, making major reductions in our carbon footprints and saving money at the same time. We’re aiming to convert 10% of our fleet to electric vehicles by 2015, and we’re glad to be helping other businesses to do the same.”
