BYD to lease E6 electric cars to Taiwan taxi firm, paper says

Carmaker BYD Co. Ltd. (01211.HK, 002594.CN) will lease more than 1,500 units of its E6 electric car to a Taiwan taxi operator, Commercial Times reported Wednesday, citing Chen Wei-ren, chairman of the company’s Taiwan unit. The E6, which has been adopted by taxi companies in Shenzhen and Hong Kong, is expected to begin sales in Taiwan in the first quarter next year and will be priced at about NT$1.7 million (US$57,684) each, the report said. Operators can save more than NT$10,000 a month in fuel cost, Chen was quoted as saying.
