Fully-electric taxis to ply Singapore's roads from September By Kenneth Lim . SINGAPORE: For the first time, a fleet of fully-electric taxis will ply Singapore's roads from the first week of September this year. One hundred of these vehicles will be rolled out by the first quarter of 2017 as part of a trial. The vehicles will be run by local firm HDT Singapore Taxi, which is making its foray into the taxi market. In a media release on Monday (Jul 25), HDT said its e-taxi service will operate for eight years with vehicles provided by BYD, a Chinese-based auto and battery manufacturer. This will give the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) the opportunity to study whether new electric vehicle business models are viable for Singapore's land transport network, HDT said. HDT's taxis will take about 90 minutes to charge fully, and HDT said it would implement the necessary charging infrastructure. It is also looking to introduce a new business model, where taxi drivers become full-time employees. This means they will get benefits under the Singapore Employment Act. The move is a departure from current taxi operations, where operators lease taxis out to drivers for a fee. - CNA/dl 
