Singapore has launched its first large-scale electric car-sharing programme through which the land-scarce city-state hopes to provide commuters with more transport options and steer them away from the need to buy their own cars.
 
The service, which will be run for a decade by BlueSG, a unit of France’s Bollore Group, is a part of Singapore’s plans to reduce the number of vehicles on its roads and encourage the use of public transport.
 
Already about 80 cars and 32 charging stations are available for public use, BlueSG said in a statement.
 
It aims to roll out a fleet of 1,000 electric vehicles and 2,000 charging points by 2020.
 
BlueSG said Singapore’s service will become the world’s second-biggest electric car-sharing programme after Paris.
 
The statement did not show how much the project costs. Singapore’s government has provided some funding for the programme’s infrastructure.
 
BlueSG’s cars feature two-door hatchbacks that carry four people running on lithium-metal-polymer batteries that drive up to 200 kilometres on a full charge.
