Are our taxi cabs about to switch from hybrid to electric?

Up to 90 per cent of taxi cabs in Australia's biggest cities are hybrid – after decades of LPG-powered Holdens and Fords – but now some operators are experimenting with pure electric power. There are at least five fully electric taxi cabs in use in NSW – BYD E6 models imported from China – and more are under consideration.

Kia ramps up electric cars overseas, Australian plans yet to be confirmed

Kia will introduce two new electric cars by 2021, to bring its tally to 11 electrified vehicles in its fleet by 2025. Although names of the new models are yet to be released, Kia says there will be a plug-in hybrid this year and a full-electric vehicle (EV) slated for a 2021 release. Kia Australia says it is too early to determine whether these models will make it to local showrooms.
