According to a report in EON, 45 all-electric e6 sports utility vehicles officially joined Bogotá’s taxi fleet earlier this week thanks in part to the abolition of duties for electric vehicles being imported to Colombia. Speaking at a launch ceremony on Monday, city mayor Dr Gustavo Petro Urrero said the new BYD vehicles were part of Colombia’s BIOTAXIS Project, aimed at eventually replacing all conventional taxis with electric vehicles.
