Singapore Officially Launches Electric Car Sharing Service

- Dec 18, 2017-

The first large-scale electric car sharing service in Singapore was launched on December 12.Singapore wants to reduce car ownership and encourage the public to use public transport, which is part of the plan.

The electric car-sharing service is provided by BlueSG, a subsidiary of French pollol group.BlueSG's electric car is a two-door hatchback, with four people, powered by a lithium-metal polymer battery, with a range of 200 kilometers.

The service has two memberships available for passengers, one for a certain annual fee and a fee of 0.33 new yuan per minute (about RMB 1.7 yuan).The other is to charge a fee of 0.5 new yuan (about 2.4 yuan) per minute.The second method is close to Autolib, a car-sharing service launched in Paris by the group.BlueSG says 2,000 customers have already booked the service.

The introduction of electric car-sharing services can provide commuters with diversified travel options and guide people to reduce their purchases.Singapore's roads are in good condition, traffic is relatively unimpeded, and the testing of self-driving technology is strongly advocated.

Singapore's land scarcity is one of the most expensive countries in the world to own cars.Singapore announced in October that it would not allow a net increase in cars from February 2018.In order to strictly control the number of cars, Singapore has set up an annual growth rate of cars, and consumers have won the right to use the car for a certain period of time through bidding.In general, a mid-range car costs four times as much in Singapore as in the United States.
