It’s time for the BYD’s e6 electric car to be reviewed in the Fully Charged Show.
Robert Llewellyn described the BYD e6 as “a Chinese built 190 mile range electric taxi that’s surprisingly pleasant to drive.”
Private hire chauffeur operator Thriev recently launched a fleet of 20 fully-electric BYD e6 cars in London.
Thriev is the first company to offer 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 190 miles.
The 20 BYD e6 vehicles operated by Thriev join two fully-electric BYD buses that are already in service with Go-Ahead Group on two central Transport for London routes.
The Thriev service will be supported by a brand new city-wide charging network installed by British Gas in addition to its own rapid charging stations.
