If you’ve always wanted to try out an electric car, your dream may just come true soon.
This is because local taxi company, Big Blue Taxi Facilities, is expected to use the first batch of its 100 electric-powered taxis beginning this July or August.
According to a report in Bernama, the company’s founder and adviser Datuk Shamsubahrin Ismail said the launch of the electric vehicles was supposed to be held in May, but it was delayed due to some processes before obtaining approval.
“We are also in the process of signing the contract with local companies on the installation process of the electric powered-cabs, and if it is successful, we are expecting our first production of 5,000 units,“ he reportedly said.
Big Blue Taxi’s self-service counters would be located at public places including hotels, tourists areas, and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
