Rotterdam Taxi Centre (RTC), one of the biggest taxi operators in the Netherlands, is switching to electric taxis and has put into service two BYD e6 models, following successful extensive operation with an e6 model. RTC plans to extend its fleet of emissions free pure electric taxis to 25 within the next 18 months, according to CEO Sjaak de Winter. The BYD e6 is a five-passenger, crossover vehicle powered by the BYD Fe battery (lithium-iron phosphate).
