Another transport business will benefit with the current technology offered for electric vehicle is the Taxi business. For a Philippine setup, taxi operator who have a current franchise covers Metro Manila only can invest with electric car as a replacement for their old cars. Benefits? Simple, fuel cost which is a nightmare for both operator and drivers as well. Maintenance are lessen due the movable parts that where remove which are present with the conventional petrol based engines.
One brand that I am seeing that is feasible to provide an electric car is the BYD E6 which it is already proven with our Asian neighbors as their taxi cars.
