Latin America is again at the forefront of e-mobility. After the e-buses of Chile, which have truly revolutionized public transportation in the country’s capital, Santiago, “electrifying” news is now coming from Peru. In partnership with Chinese car manufacturer BYD and Peruvian operator Taxi Directo, Enel X has launched a pilot project to put two electric taxis into service in the Peruvian capital of Lima. The taxis will circulate for six months and the aim is to gather data about vehicle performance with a view to integrating 30 electric cars into the taxi company’s fleet. Peru’s first two electric taxis will record data on costs and savings, emission reductions and the performance of the smart chargers. The charging stations, a Juicebox Pro 32 and a Fast Charge, will be installed by Enel X’s team in Peru while BYD will provide the two e-vehicles which will be operated and managed by Taxi Directo.
