Langkawi, a popular tourist destination off Malaysia’s northwest coast, is set to welcome a fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) as taxis on its roads with the first electric taxi expected to begin rolling by year-end.
Sources familiar with the matter says the fleet is expected to number around 40 EVs, which will be operated by local taxi drivers. Details are scarce but it is believed that BYD E6, Hyundai Ionic (all-electric) and the Nissan Leaf are among the models being looked at. Sources say the federal government would support the set-up of the charging infrastructure.
